Which retail stores are open on Easter Sunday, and where can you get last-minute goodies for the Easter Bunny to deliver? Walmart, CVS, and even 7-11 may end up being your best bet if you need some candy, a greeting card, or colorful plastic eggs used for Easter egg hunts.
However, if you need a new outfit to wear to Easter dinner, you may be out of luck. Kohl’s, Marshalls, Macy’s, Nordstrom, and most malls will be closed — you will have to find something in your closet if you’re not a fan of Walmart apparel.
According to Saving Advice, Walmart seems to be the only big-box store open on April 5. Even Target is closing its doors on Sunday, so buy your baskets, Peeps, Easter egg dye, and chocolate bunnies by Saturday if prefer shopping at Target over Walmart.
Are all Walmart stores open on Easter? The retailer’s Supercenter stores are open 365 days a year, around the clock, so you will be able to pick up a spiral ham, flowers, and basket supplies at any time on Sunday. Regular Walmart locations will be open normal business hours — these vary by location.
