If You Forgot The Ham, Kroger Has You Covered On Easter Sunday

Because if you didn’t forget a crucial ingredient, are you even cooking a holiday meal?

What is it about holiday cooking that just makes you forgetful? Even some of the best meal preppers and planners, when creating a grocery list for a big dinner gathering, can forget to put a few (very essential) ingredients on the list. And it’s scenarios like these that will have home cooks hoping Kroger is open on Easter so they can grab a new ham.

If you need eggs, candy, or just an extra pack of toilet paper, you’re in luck — Kroger stores nationwide are open on Easter Sunday 2022. Important to note, however, is that their pharmacies are closed on Easter Sunday, so if you have a prescription you need, you’ll want to pick it up in advance. If you don’t have a Kroger nearby, plenty of other stores like Walmart and Safeway will be open on Sunday, April 17 as well.

Be sure to keep an eye on Kroger’s weekly ad to see if anything you need to prepare your Easter feast comes with some savings. They carry all the must-have candies, like Reese’s Eggs and Peeps, as well as wrapped assorted candies to fill up those Easter eggs before the family egg hunt begins. If you visit their website, you can even shop categories for filling up your special somebunny’s Easter basket, whether you’re looking for non-candy items, like small toys and art supplies, or beauty and bath goodies for grownups’ Easter baskets.
