Whether it’s the free samples or the ability to buy items in bulk, Costco is beloved by many shoppers. If you’re entertaining on Easter Sunday, you’ll likely need to stock up on a lot of things. But if Costco is your go-to, you’ll have to plan ahead. 

There are only a handful of days that Costco is closed, and Easter Sunday happens to be one of them, according to a statement on their website. So be sure to plan ahead and shop early.

If you need help planning what to do or serve on Easter and what Costco finds you can get to cut down on some of the prep work, look no further. We’re here to help. One pro tip is to check their upcoming sales before you head to your local store so you get the best deals possible.

If you’re in charge of dinner, you could keep it simple and jazz up one of their classic rotisserie chickens. One of our food editors, Patty Catalano, is also a huge fan of the Kirkland Signature thick-cut lamb loin chops. “They are cut thick enough to develop a deep, gorgeous sear without overcooking the center of the chop,” Catalano says. If you decide to pick them up, you can make garlic butter lamb chops in just 20 minutes. 

To end the meal, try your hand at recreating one of Costco’s signature desserts like this sweet and tart lemon meringue cheesecake or this luscious and rich chocolate peanut butter pie. If baking isn’t your forte, pick up this flourless Belgian chocolate cake. Plate it up on a pretty platter — no one has to know you didn’t spend hours in the kitchen. 

Planning on decorating eggs? This all-in-one egg cooker will make it a breeze and allow you to cook a dozen hard-boiled eggs at once. If you need something to snack on while you decorate, get these cinnaroll twists, a delicious hybrid between a cinnamon bun and churro. Or grab these strawberry and yogurt pretzels to satisfy that sweet and salty craving.
