    I am surprised Wegmans will be open. I guess because it is a food store and many cannot plan ahead. They do pay extra for people to work on Sunday. Love that store. They have Dr. Mercola and Life Extension supplements!
    Best Bakery of all!

    • Amy

      most grocery stores stay open with limited hours, for things people forgot. that said, many people don’t celebrate Easter, certainly less than Christmas, so some stores may not find it necessary.

  2. Kate+4

    Easter isn’t a big deal at our house (I forgot it was this Sunday until 2 days ago when grandma called!) So saying ppl can’t plan ahead is a bit presumptuous imho when 4 so many ppl it’s not a much bigger deal than St. Patrick’s Day or Valentines Day (yes, I know, religious holidays technically too). I share both meanings of Easter with my kids, the origin celebrating the Pagan fertility goddess Eostra & the Christian in honor of Jesus. Only right since we participate in all the Pagan celebrations of hiding eggs, leaving our baskets and the Easter bunny. After the fun is done in the morning, it is a regular Sunday afternoon for us. I see no need to close stores. As it’s not a national holiday (like most other faith’s “big” holidays) no extra pay should be required. Or maybe I’m just the odd duck around here? Not sure. LoL hope EVERYONE enjoys their weekend in anyway they see it (but at least eat ONE chocolate bunny ear….. I think there is a law on that!)

    • Lo

      Lol I forgot also. I knew Good Friday and Easter Monday cuz school is closed but completely forgot about Sunday.

  3. Lora

    I am glad many stores are closed on Easter and other holidays. The employees deserve to spend time with their families, especially on religious holidays. I understand some pharmacies being open for emergencies for sudden illness, but other unnecessary stuff can wait a day.

    • Amy

      only 45% of americans consider themselves religious. and this doesn’t not mean just christians. stores have the choice, but many workers decided to work time and a half.

      • LALA

        Not all stores pay time and a half.

  4. Evie

    No, it should be a paid day off for everyone to be with their families.
    I think if government and others get paid for the day off. Why not all people. Of course, some emergency workers have to be there. Hopefully they get double time.
    If Easter is considered a religious holiday, why is Christmas not?
    I remember the beautiful dresses, church and Easter Egg hunts. I guess this is to be “canceled” along with everything the malcontents want to.

    • ToriSC

      Not everyone is Christian and we have this thing called Freedom of Religion in this country not Christian Only religion. You celebrate yours your way and leave the rest of us out of it.

      • cooper

        Right. Easter and Christmas are religious holidays. Not everyone in America celebrates them.

        The only day all stores should be closed Thanksgiving, which everyone can celebrate no matter your religion or lack of.

    • Just breathe

      Lol the people acting like if they gave you a day off you would have to be religious or go or church.
      Maybe a paid day off would be good for your mental health or just to do what non religious people do.

  5. runnergirl838

    I wish all stores were closed on all Sundays.

    • Casey

      Would be nice but never going to happen.

    • Around the World

      Agreed. One day a week for the rest day. Once upon a time it was like that and the world was so much quieter on the Sabbath. Sad to see the world in such chaos. It has been prophecied but still hard to watch and comprehend.

    • Lisa

      I agree. That’s how it was when I was growing up in the 60’s. You even had to remember to buy gas by Saturday night!

  6. acgold

    I really never participate in these discussions, but people have to realize that not everyone celebrates the same holidays. On our religious holidays, which are holy days I have to use my vacation time to go to religious services and spend time with my family. In college the stores stated to open on Sundays. I worked Sundays and would have gladly worked Easter for double time as I did not celebrate and could use the money. My father worked many a Christmas and Easter to give someone who observed a chance to be with their families and go to services. He was not accorded the same and also had to use vacation time for our holidays.

    • CSexton311

      This comment 👏🏻 🙌🏻 Everyone needs to learn from this. This is what I argue with people about every time these posts come up. Not everyone is Christian. Not everyone wants to be off on these holidays. Some people need/want the extra money. Whatever the reason, it’s valid! People need to stop saying that stores should be closed for these Christian holidays as that is your personal preference. Just don’t go shopping that day, problem solved. Or if you work in retail, ask for it off. I am Christian, however, I always volunteered to work those days because I needed the extra pay and at the time, I was a college student that didn’t really need to have the whole day off to celebrate. I worked so someone with little kids and a family could have it off instead of me because I didn’t have big plans for the day. I can work 8-10 hours and still have plenty of time to spend with my family. I always volunteered to work overnight Black Fridays because I WANTED to. Not everyone that works in retail wants it to be closed. Some of us get paid off for it, as you can see, some people don’t get paid off for their holidays that they celebrate. This country caters to Christian holidays. What you should be arguing about it why businesses aren’t giving employees the option to swap holidays for this reason here. Companies should be giving people floating holidays instead to use at their discretion.

      • Cheryl S

        Good call. This country was founded on religious freedom…right? The right to practice individual religion or to practice no religion at all…yet so many scream about Christian religion and Christian holidays as if they are the only ones that matter.

        • zoe

          Nobody is “screaming” about any of this, they are simply giving their opinion.
          This country was also founded on free speech.
          The long-winded aggressive comments are not coming from Christians.

  7. margaret-6

    I’d rather see which stores are closed so their families can spend Easter together.
