We all forget things sometimes, and you may not realize that you forgot to pick up an item from the store until you need it on Easter morning (Easter falls on Sunday, April 9 this year, by the way). Whether it’s an ingredient for your Easter dinner, a final item for the Easter baskets or extra eggs for one of your favorite Easter traditions, the annual egg hunt, there’s no need to panic. If you’re looking for stores open on Easter, there are a few that may have what you need, and we’ve listed them here. But before you head out, call ahead to check your local store’s hours. Even if it is open, their hours may vary because of the holiday.
