This weekend, people all around America will be gathering to celebrate Easter. Family dinners, church potlucks, and Easter egg hunts will be in full effect, while children excitedly open Easter baskets filled with the best Easter candies around.

Though there’s a lot to look forward to, the stress of planning for a big day can almost ensure that you’ll forget something you’ll need. And when it’s time to go pick it up, you may be left in a frenzy trying to figure out all the grocery stores that will be open on Easter Sunday.

Whether it’s picking up an extra toy for an Easter basket from Target, flowers for your spring centerpiece, or pastel-colored paper cups (for those of us who hate doing dishes) from Walmart, it feels almost impossible to avoid forgetting something — even with all the lists you make before the big day. 

When it happens, an instant feeling of dread sets in because with it being a holiday, many stores aren’t guaranteed to be open. Thankfully, we’ve compiled a list of the stores that will be open on Easter Sunday during normal business hours or adjusted hours, so that you’re able to get what you need on the day you need it.
