What does the butcher's (meaning the butcher's shop) become in the plural?

If the sentence in the singular is:

The butcher's and the hairdresser's are closed on Sunday.

What happens if I want to make it plural?

  2. Butchers' and hairdressers' are closed on Sunday.

  3. Butcher's shops and hairdresser's salons are closed on Sunday.
