Easter weekend is almost here, so you're definitely going to want to know what's closed on Easter Sunday before all the excitement begins. Because while some stores will be open, many will close — which is sort of a double whammy because Sunday is already a difficult day to find open businesses. There are two groups of people who will likely be most affected by the store closings: the people who are hosting Easter dinners, and the people who don't celebrate Easter at all.

If you're hosting, chances are that no matter how prepared you think you are for the big day, you'll forget something. Something important, like milk, or Easter egg grass for the egg baskets, or mixers for the cocktails. Right before your guests arrive, there's always a wave of clarity that reminds you that you've forgotten something that you desperately need. And when most of your go-to stores are closed for the holiday, it's going to be a scramble to figure something out.

If you're not celebrating Easter, your Sunday is going to feel a bit post-apocalyptical with tons of store closings and not many people on the streets. You'll want to plan ahead so that you can figure out how to live your life around the closings. Though, it all might just be a good excuse to stay home and get some spring cleaning or Netflix binging out of the way. Your call.

Either way, these are the businesses that will definitely be closed on Easter Sunday. And if you're not sure whether or not a local business is closed by you, give them a call. Chances are, if they're closed they'll have a message saying so.
