PUBLIX is an employee-owned US supermarket chain based in Lakeland, Florida.
The first Publix, called the Publix Food Store, was launched in 1930.
Is Publix open on Easter Sunday 2021?
Some food and grocery stores are open on Easter Sunday – but Publix is not one of them.
“All stores and pharmacies will be closed on Easter Sunday, April 4,” reads a message on the Publix website.
Easter is a Christian tradition that celebrates the resurrection of Jesus and marks the end of Lent.
It is is not considered a federal holiday in the US.
The holiday is always on a Sunday, yet the date changes depending on the first full moon that occurs after the vernal equinox.
Will Publix open on Easter Monday?
Publix will be open for business on Monday, April 5.
“We’ll be back to our regular hours on Monday, April 5, for your convenience,” read a message on the Publix website.
Please check with your local Publix for exact store hours.
“All stores and pharmacies had adjusted hours; however, many have returned to their normal operating hours. For the latest information on store hours, please use our store locator,” the company says.
What are the Covid-19 restrictions at Publix?
Coronavirus face coverings are required for customers at all Publix locations in a measure that was implemented during the summer of 2020.
Employees will provide a mask to any customer who may not have one.
Store managers can limit “customer traffic” and shoppers are urged to practice social distancing at all times.
“Publix cares about the health of our associates and customers,” the company says in a statement on its website.
“Since the US Centers of Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) first announced its concerns about coronavirus, we have remained in close contact with federal and state agencies.
“We are continually monitoring developments and updated guidance from the CDC and other health officials.
“Additionally, we are taking actions across our operations to help safeguard our customers, associates and communities. “
There are about 1,300 Publix locations, including more than 800 in Florida.
