Maybe a family wants to continue the tradition of family feast. Or the Easter Bunny needs somewhere to buy last-minute chocolates to put in a basket. A holiday weekend only heightens the hunger for normalcy amid the COVID-19 pandemic.

You need to fact check yourself. Wal-Mart’s hours are 7 am-8:30pm for the supercenters. Associates don’t really need customers coming up to the doors and trying to force their way in when the store is closed. Despite not being open for business outside of those hours associates are extremely busy trying to clean and stock the shelves during that time… They don’t need interruptions.
