More retailers will be closed on Easter than in previous years due to the Corona virus pandemic.
In addition to the long list of companies that temporarily closed stores due to COVID-19, some grocery stores that have kept their doors open normally on holiday will be closed to give employees a day off.
Many stores also reduced working hours to give employees time to re-store shelves and cleaning in addition to working hours for the elderly and those most vulnerable to HIV infection.
Among retailers who announced that they would be closed on April 12, a change from last year, trader Joe, Superbrot Farmers Market, BJ Wholesale Club, Southeast Grocery Store (BI-LO, Fresco y Más, Harveys Supermarket and Winn-Dixie). Not all companies announced the 2020 plans.

BJ Wholesale Club, which has 218 locations, said in a statement that all clubs would be closed “to give team members a day to rest and recharge.”
Shops that have traditionally been closed on Easter include: Costco, Sam’s Club and Target. Shopping malls and stores, most of which were closed due to COVID-19, have also remained closed on Easter in recent years, while home improvement stores have remained open, alongside gas station and drugstore stores.
Sears, which has closed hundreds of websites in recent years, has been one exception in past years. This year, stores will be closed as the retailer announced in a press release that all stores will be closed on Saturday until “April 30th at least”.
