Like others, you may be going all out for the Easter bunny-approved festivities this weekend. From getting the baskets ready for the family to making your coveted pan of scalloped potatoes for your after-church guests, preparing yourself for the big day can be time-consuming. Even more, it can cause you to forget key ingredients — like butter or the Cadbury Mini Eggs — for those Easter Egg Blondies you’ve been waiting to make.

Whether your Easter emergency includes any of the above or happens to be a cheesy one, you may find yourself frantically searching for a grocery store that’s open near you. And, depending on where you live, you may find yourself wondering: Is Trader Joe’s open on Easter? 

If the beloved chain happens to be your favorite place to shop, you’ll be happy to know that locations will be open until 5 p.m. on Easter Sunday. According to the retailer’s website, all locations will close at 5 p.m. “so that our Crew Members can enjoy the evening with family and friends.” While TJ’s doors will be closing a bit earlier than usual, it still gives you plenty of time to shop, just in case someone forgets the green beans

Over the years, the California-based chain has solidified itself as one of the top grocers in the United States, bringing in an estimated $16.5 billion annually. It does so by prioritizing customer experience and offering a variety of the best ingredients at the lowest prices. Perhaps the company’s secret sauce is the laid-back team members outfitted in Hawaiian shirts, 19 cents bananas, delicacies like this Unexpected Cheddar Cheese Spread, or their ongoing commitment to sustainability. Whatever it is, Trader Joe’s goes to great lengths to create a shopping experience you truly can’t get anywhere else. 

On the off chance that you do forget something and don’t live near Trader Joe’s, other grocers will be open, but hours may be limited or vary by location.
