Trader Joe’s announced they will be closing all stores on Easter Sunday, April 12 to allow employees a day to rest, according to the store’s website. 

In addition, Aldi, Costco, Publix, Sam’s Club, and Target will also be closed on Easter Sunday, The Today Show reported.  So be sure to stock up on your easter egg decorating kits in advance.
