    Supermarkets, open today and on May 1 throughout Italy: list

    The first Monday of May is Workers’ Day, celebrated for more than a century in Italy and in other countries of the world to remember the many struggles for workers’ rights. Schools and offices will remain closed and shops will also be closed in observance of this special day. However, some major department stores and malls have chosen to remain open and available to customers. Let’s see which ones and when.

    Esselunga, Lidl, and Conad

    All Esselunga stores, around 172 across Italy, will be closed on Sunday 30 April and 1 May throughout the day. Some, located in less populated cities, may make some exceptions with unusually shortened hours. On the official website of the supermarket it is possible to check availability at each location. The Lidl chain will also close most of its branches. Same on Sunday, open Monday through Saturday. But on the official website it is possible to check whether there are unusual openings and at what time. As far as Konad is concerned, the decision to open or not and at what time (usually between the 7th and 21st) is up to the members. We therefore recommend that you inquire in advance at the supermarket itself.
