Need to make a quick shopping trip or your Easter feast fell through? Here’s everywhere that’s open on the Christian holiday this year!
Sometimes you just can’t avoid shopping on a holiday. If you find yourself in a bind on Easter and realize you need some last minute plastic eggs, there are some places you can go. Plenty of drugstores, restaurants, and grocery stores will be open on April 1 this year. CVS, Walgreens, and Rite Aid will all be open on Easter, but some pharmacies will be closed or have limited hours. Also don’t expect to hit up a mall or a department store as they’re typically closed on the holiday, but stores like Sears, Bed Bath & Beyond, Home Depot, and Lowe’s should have you covered. Most gas station convenience stores will also be open.
Some places are even hosting free Easter events for kids! Check out participating Bass Pro Shops and Cabela‘s for free crafts and photos with the Easter Bunny. But if none of these places cut it for you, check out our full list of places open on Easter 2018 below.
