Easter is Sunday, April 4 and with many Americans getting the COVID-19 vaccine and a sense of hope in the air, we're in a much different place than we were last year. In 2020, many grocery stores opted to close their doors on Easter Sunday in order to give their employees who were just beginning to navigate the task of serving customers while staying safe, a much-needed break for the day.

But now that shopping with masks, safety shields and social distancing has become the new normal, many U.S. stores will be open on the holiday for any last-minute needs. Maybe you're hoping to make a glazed ham but haven't gotten around to food shopping (understandable!) or you just want some goodies to fill the little ones' Easter baskets (Peeps, we see you). And if you're looking for eggs, either for dyeing or for that Sunday brunch frittata, you should be able to find what you need.
