WASHINGTON — If you need some last minute Easter candy or brunch ingredients this Sunday, your store of choice may just happen to be closed for the day.
For instance, as long as it's not too late, you'll be able to hit up Walmart for anything you need, but don't bother showing up to buy in bulk at Sam's Club or Costco.
Here's a list of which major retail and pharmacy chains will keep their doors open on Easter, and which ones will be closed until Monday.
