Easter Sunday Shopping.
In Saskatoon you could shop for groceries today. The Sobeys grocery store nearest to me is open, and I assume the others probably are as well. The malls were closed. Walmart? I don't know, but being open or not wouldn't surprise me. The websites of Best Buy and Future Shop seem to indicate they're open today. As I understand it Saskatoon no longer regulates store hours, so businesses can be open when they wish. With the change of demographics in religious belief, or lack thereof, in Canada it will be interesting to see how much longer Easter remains a largely closed day for shopping, as for many Canadians Easter Sunday is no more important than any other Sunday.
