Good news: loads of stores are open on Easter Sunday because while Easter is a popular holiday, it’s not quite at Christmas levels of popularity. Many stores opt to stay open and take advantage of the extra foot traffic. You know, people like us who might be known to put off filling plastic eggs or organizing Easter baskets. Or maybe that’s just me …
Either way I found some grocery stores, restaurants, pharmacies, retail stores, and convenience stores that’ll cover your little last-minute hunny. Plus, you can always shop online on Easter Sunday and place an order for pickup on the day after.
