Aloha,

I grew up in a small LDS town here in Hawaii, and on Sunday everything here is closed- everything- the local grocery store and even Dominoes Pizza. But that is just that particular town...I don't want to stereotype UT--but my naivete has got to me....so please ease my simple mind and please tell me that the whole state doesn't shut down

Mahalo!

Stores that are part of large national chains are almost all open. Stores that are privately owned by Latter-day Saints are generally closed.

I found Sunday closures more prevalent in Utah County. I think malls in Salt Lake county are open as are grocery stores except Macey's.

All the mall stores are open on Sundays, as are most restraunts and bigger, national chains. The mom and pops are closed, and some of the grocery stores.
But, if there's something you need to do on Sunday, you most likely will find somewhere open to do it. (Aside from paying bills).

I'll second this. And of course places that rely on the M-F 9-5 consumers, which are typically closed on the weekends in general.

The smaller the town, the more likely everything will be closed. I ran a business in a very small Utah town (2,000 pop.) and even as an atheist, I chose to close on Sun. and Mon. due to an almost total lack of business.

Yup, you can basically assume that more rural areas will be closed, national chains will be open, and Utah County is the most prevalent closures.

Quite a culture we've got. ^-^
