I was there on a Wednesday so I can't answer definitively. However, being China, they will be on the look-out to make as much money as possible. Closing on a Sunday is primarily a western (Christian) concept. Having travelled extensively throughout China for both business & pleasure over the past 20 years, I can attest that unless it's Lunar New Year (Feb) or Golden Week (early Oct) pretty much everything is open.
