list of stores open and closed on Easter
When holidays in the US approach, it’s always a challenge to know which stores will be open and which stores won’t. That’s because there is no set criteria which determines whether a store remains open or not. Whether it’s a federal holiday or a religious holiday, each store chain gets to decide for themselves. This means some stores may be open on some holidays while closed on others. With Easter fast approaching, many people are wondering if and when their favorite stores will be open over the Easter weekend. You can find a list of stores below which will be open and closed on Easter Sunday.


Target is closed Easter. Target is a store where there is a lot of confusion whether or not their stores are open on Easter due to wrong information on the Internet. Target stores are closed on April 16 (which has been confirmed), but will be open for business on the other days of Easter weekend.


Walmart is open Easter. Walmart is one of the stores which keeps its doors open on April 16, 2017. If you are in need of getting some last minute goodies for the holiday, or want to start shopping for Easter bargain as the store discounts holiday items not sold, you can begin doing it on Easter Sunday. You can see Walmart’s entire weekend schedule from Good Friday to Easter Monday by visiting your local store’s website.
