MOORESVILLE, N.C. (WNCT) Lowe’s Companies announces all stores and distribution centers in the United States and Canada will be closed on Easter Sunday.

“Our ability to support communities with essential goods and services during this pandemic is thanks to our outstanding, dedicated associates,” said Marvin Ellison, Lowe’s president and CEO. “We want to provide our teams with a much-deserved day off to spend Easter Sunday with their families and loved ones and recharge.

Their actions are nothing short of heroic.”
