According to the Retail Association of Maine, stores in Maine that exceed 5,000 square feet are not allowed to be open on Thanksgiving, Christmas and Easter. The statute requires stores like Target, Walmart and Home Depot to remain closed. The big-box store exception is L.L. Bean, which uses the exemption that "establishments primarily selling boats, boating equipment, sporting equipment, souvenirs and novelties" can remain open.
Pharmacies, gasoline stations and theaters are also allowed to remain open, according to the Retail Association of Maine.
