Wow, Target is closed today

Caught me off guard. In this 24/7/365 world, kind of caught me off guard.
Amazingly, every little mom and pop business in the strip malls around it appeared to be open as are all the fast food places.

I thought my employer was behind the times 2 years ago when they dumped Good Friday as a holiday.

Tried to shop there last year to learn that Easter is a big holiday for stores to close. I had no idea.....

Great to hear some retailers pause to reflect or respect those of us who believe...Alleluia, He Is Risen!

In my experience the same places that are closed on Christmas are also closed in Easter. Typically some restaurants are open abd the grocery stores that are open have limited hours. I've never known any of the major retailers to be open on Easter.

We went to Cracker Barrel for dinner, was surprised it was open.
Grocery stores were closed except for one and that closed at 4pm. All other stores/malls save for CVS and Walgreens all were closed today.
Yeah I'm a dude...

I've known for a few years that Targets were closed on Easter Sunday. However, we went out for lunch after church, and the local Italian restaurant we went to was packed.

We decided to head over to a nearby In-N-Out Burger. It was closed!! I wasn't upset, and in fact I was pleasantly surprised. We ended up at Abuelo's.
