Better get your shopping done before April 12th because more and more shops are closing their doors this year to take the day off. While we can't predict the future problems, like you forgot to pick up the Easter eggs or the dog got into the ham, it's a good idea to have a look at what stores are open before going out of the way.
This list includes major department stores that have decided to close nationwide, along with national chains and drug stores. This list may or may not reflect every location so make sure to call ahead of time to find out the operating hours.
Update: April 7, 2020
Please check with your local store for hours regarding Easter Sunday and new hours due to Coronavirus. Lowes recently announced it will be closed on Easter Sunday to give their employees a well-needed rest. ""Our ability to support communities with essential goods and services during this pandemic is thanks to our outstanding, dedicated associates," said Marvin Ellison, Lowe's president and CEO. "We want to provide our teams with a much-deserved day off to spend Easter Sunday with their families and loved ones and recharge. We will take steps to ensure that no hourly associate loses scheduled hours or has a reduction in pay as a result of closing on Sunday. I want to personally thank our 300,000 associates who have helped families stay safely at home. Their actions are nothing short of heroic."
