You can expect on most holidays that all shops and supermarkets are closed. On many of the holidays, you can still find supermarkets and shops like Rossman and DM are open, even on holidays. You can find them at public transit stations, including Ostbahnhof, Südkreuz, Gesundbrunnen, Lichtenberg, and Spandau. Failing that, use one of the grocery delivery apps like Gorillas and Flink.
