Target, Lowe's, Trader Joe's To Close Easter Sunday To Give Employees A Break

LOS ANGELES (CBSLA) – Several major grocery and retail chains will close their doors this Easter Sunday to give their employees a breather amid a coronavirus pandemic which has seen unprecedented panic buying.

Home improvement giant Lowe's was the latest to announce it will be closing on Sunday, April 12, so its 300,000 employees can get some time with their families.

Lowe's emphasized that its workers would not lose pay or hours due to the closure.

Last week, Trader Joe's announced it would be closing its stores as well Sunday to give workers "a much needed day of rest."
