Walmart and Easter
Walmart has long courted Easter shopping business. According to Campden FB, "Walmart, controlled by the descendants of Sam Walton, found that among the families planning to celebrate Easter, almost 60% would buy chocolate.
"Many of those cracking open chocolate Easter eggs today will be enjoying products made by family businesses, like Mars, the American confectionery giant controlled by the eponymous family, or Italian favorite Ferrero. Then there are the smaller family businesses, making less famous but often equally delicious options, such as Ireland’s Butlers Chocolates, which is selling small praline-filled eggs."
But once again, Walmart stores will be open on Easter Sunday. Check with your local store for operating hours.
