This year Easter Sunday falls on 4 April, with the vast majority of people getting the day off to celebrate the holiday. However this means that there will be some disruption to stores and other services, with some employing shorter opening hours and some closing entirely.

One of the biggest retailers in the United States is home improvement store Home Depot, which supplies tools, construction products and services for trade and for individuals. Many people will be planning to use the holiday to partake in a bit of DIY, but will Home Depot be open this Easter Sunday?

What are Home Depot’s opening hours on Easter Sunday?

Anyone looking to stock up on some home improvement essentials will be delighted to know that Home Depot will be open every day across the Easter weekend. The only day with some changes to the regular opening and closing times is Easter Sunday, which will have a reduced service with shorter opening hours.

Stores across the country will have different Easter hours, and in some states the covid-19 restrictions may limit the opening and closing times further. To be sure you don’t waste a journey, check out the store times for your local Home Depot with this handy Store Guide.
