Easter egg hunts and church services are typical for many East Texans during the Easter weekend. But before people go to Sunday service they're spending money on Easter goodies. "Easter weekend is generally a very big weekend for us. Sales are very brisk normally around this time we have increase guest traffic," Barbara Holden, Target employee said. She says it's not as busy as Christmas but the flow of customers is pretty constant. And it's not just candy and plastic eggs that they're selling. She explains, "A lot of guests shopping in the mini seasonal area for goodies to stuff those Easter baskets with. We also usually will see an increase in electronic items, things that people buy for the stuffers for their baskets."
