Easter Sunday is April 20 and many businesses that are usually in operation on Sundays will be closed or have limited hours in observance of the Christian holiday. Regardless of what has been posted, it is a very good idea to call ahead before shopping on any holiday to see if your local businesses have made any last minute changes and perhaps have gone rogue from what their chain of stores is doing.
The following businesses have announced that they will be "closed" on Easter Sunday:
Chick Fil A is closed every Sunday in observance of the Sabbath
Target: Some stores will be closed while others will have limited hours
Malls: Some malls will be closed but many will be open. Call before visiting
Staples: Some likely to be closed but not all
Banks – even those that are usually open on Sundays such as TD Bank- are closed, but ATMS and online banking is available, including Bank of America, Chase, and Citibank
Gas stations: Many gas stations are closed at many locations
Restaurants are often closed on Easter Sunday, while many are open with limited hours, a different menu than usual, and elevated prices
Federal offices of all types
State offices of all types
City offices of all types
County offices of all types
Again, it is extremely wise to call ahead before heading out to do business on Easter Sunday because many businesses are closed. Additionally, some business do not reopen until Tuesday after closing for the holiday. Therefore, putting in a phone call or checking online before going to a business on Easter Monday is also highly recommended.
