Lowe’s has announced it will be closed on Easter Sunday, joining Costco, Target and Trader Joe’s in giving their employees the holiday off.

Other retailers have observed the holiday in the past. For Lowe’s the decision to close on Easter Sunday is new this year.

Lowe’s and home improvement competitor Home Depot appear to be doing strong business despite COVID-19 stay-at-home orders in Fresno and elsewhere.

In an interview last month, Lowe’s chief executive confirmed that business has been solid.

“As customers are sheltering in place, they’re looking at that deferred list of home projects,” Marvin Ellison said on CNBC. “As they spend time around the home, they now have more time on their hands to tackle some of those things.”

In the Fresno area, business has been robust as well, based on recent social media posts.

After taking some criticism over worker safety concerns during the coronavirus pandemic, Lowe’s adjusted store hours, enhanced its paid leave policies and offered bonus pay to employees. The company also said it is emphasizing more social distancing at its stores, doing more cleaning and, establishing a curbside pickup program.

“Our stores remain open to provide essential products to customers, government officials and first responders,” the company said in March.
