What Stores Are Open on Easter Sunday 2012? Store Hours
What Stores Are Open on Easter 2012?
In the United States, most stores are closed on Easter, and if they are open, limited store hours will be in effect. Don't expect to do any serious shopping on Easter Sunday anyway.
Most malls are closed so Canadians who want to do some Easter shopping, will have to wait until Easter Monday when stores are open again, as many people have the day off north of the border.
Most major big box chains will not be open on Easter Sunday, including stores such as Target, Walmart, Best Buy, Sears and JC Penny.
For Canada, government institutions, and businesses such as banks, and even schools, will be closed Good Friday and Easter Monday, so many people will have a four-day weekend. Easter Monday is not a federal holiday in the United States so stores will be operating normal hours.
However, major restaurants will be open on Easter, as they don't want to miss out on the opportunity of people going out for Easter dinner rather than staying in and cooking at home.
