Mail delivery

Since Easter falls on a Sunday, there will be no mail service. Some packages are delivered on Sundays and that schedule may be delayed in some areas due to the holiday. There will be regular mail service on Good Friday.

Banks

Banks are traditionally closed on Sundays, so the holiday will not affect regular hours. Some branches may have limited hours on Good Friday ahead of the holiday weekend, so you should check ahead. The stock market is closed on Friday.
