So you've planned the perfect Easter get-together: there's plenty of Easter candy to go around, the house is adorned with the prettiest spring decorations, and you've already set up the egg hunting and basket-making activities. But everyone knows that holidays don't always go according to plan — especially when it comes to food and grocery shopping! Maybe you've forgotten that key ingredient in your perfect Easter dinner recipe, or perhaps even run out of chocolate eggs in your basket — but no matter what item on your shopping list you forgot to pick up, there's no need to worry: There will be plenty of grocery stores open on Easter, so you can ensure that all your holiday festivities go smoothly.

Whether you're looking for the food dye you forgot to buy or you're scrambling to replace all the Easter candy you secretly ate ahead of the holiday (oops!), head to any of these grocery stores on the list on Easter Sunday to pick up anything you need — and as always, be sure to call ahead to your local store before making your trip, as many store hours vary location. And if you'd rather have someone else do all the cooking and planning, make sure to check out our list of restaurants open on Easter before celebrating with your favorite Easter traditions.
