Easter is one of the first religious holidays of the year, celebrated by millions of families. But because it is not a federal holiday, not all stores and establishments recognize it. Many people rely on Walmart as their first choice for many of their shopping needs. Store hours during the holidays can be a bit confusing, so you are not the only one wondering about Easter Sunday holiday hours. Also, establishments like the stock market and other institutions do recognize the holiday, so it’s difficult determining what’s open. Wondering if Walmart is open on Easter or Good Friday? Here’s what you need to know.
Is Walmart open on Good Friday?
Walmart will be open on Good Friday. In fact, Walmart does not close its doors very often, and Good Friday is not one of the days it typically closes its doors.
Is Walmart Open on Easter?
Walmart will be open on Easter. According to Walmart’s holiday schedule, stores are open on Easter as well. So, if you need anything from the retail giant on Sunday, rest assured you can still stop in and pick it up.
Are Other Walmart Services Available?
Most Walmart stores have a bank, hair salon, nail salon, an optician, and income tax preparation services inside the store. Those service providers are independent of Walmart and do not follow the same operating hours as Walmart stores. Check with your local store to see if other service providers are open on Easter or any of the days surrounding Easter (Good Friday, Easter Saturday, Easter Monday).
Which Days Does Walmart Close?
Walmart only closes on Christmas each year. On Thanksgiving, some Walmart stores close their doors and reopen in the evening for early Black Friday sales. These are the only two days that Walmart has an altered schedule.
Walmart Store Hours
Since Walmart is open on Easter Sunday, April 21, none of the days around it will affect the store hours either. Walmart is open the following hours:
Friday, April 19, 2019: Regular hours
Saturday, April 20, 2019: Regular hours
Sunday, April 21, 2019: Regular hours
Monday, April 22, 2019: Regular hours
Is there an Easter Sale?
Walmart has a sale on most major holidays. Around Easter, Walmart usually puts Easter dinner supplies and food on sale. Most spring cleaning supplies are also on sale around this time. Of course, things like Easter candy, Easter baskets, and eggs are typically on sale for Easter as well. And, you can often get a great deal on these items after Easter Sunday. If you are wondering about specific sales for Easter at Walmart, be sure to check your weekly flyer or look online.
Will Walmart.com Be Available?
Because Walmart is still open for Easter, Walmart.com will also be fully operational. In fact, Walmart.com is operational every day, but delivery from the website around holidays, such as Christmas, may take a bit longer.
Getting confused about what’s open on Easter Sunday is easy. However, you have no need to worry—the Walmart superstore nearest you will be open.
