Publix Is Closing All Stores This Easter to Let Employees Celebrate at Home

Publix was named one of America's favorite grocery stores for a number of reasons: The employees are friendly, the prices are low, and the fried chicken (along with other Publix staples) is seriously delicious. While you can normally count on this Southern grocery chain to satisfy your cravings, they are sticking to tradition this year by closing all stores on Easter Sunday (which falls on April 4, 2021).

Most Publix stores are open on the days leading up to Easter from from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. So, if you need to pick up all the fixins' for your Easter dinner or simply need to restock your pantry for the week ahead, you can do so during those times. Of course, hours vary depending on location, so it's best to call ahead or check store hours on the website.

Come Sunday, if your pantry is running low and you need a holiday feast fit for your family, opt for Easter dinner delivery or to-go meals from restaurants like Cracker Barrel and Boston Market instead. There are also a bunch of other supermarket chains and stores open on Easter Sunday to help you out in a pinch.

Keep in mind that the CDC's updated guidelines continue to encourage people to limit their grocery store trips and order items for pickup or delivery, if available.
