Supermarkets Open on Sundays

Specialty food shops have long been open on Sundays but until recently, relatively few supermarkets.  But times are changing and now quite a few are open, some as late as 8:00 pm, good news for those of us constantly running low on milk or coming home from a weekend away. Take note: Decisions on Sunday openings appear to be made at the store level; just because one store in a chain is open doesn’t mean they’re all open. And opening hours are always subject to change!

If you know of other places that are open on Sundays, leave a comment and we’ll update the list.
