What's Open Easter Weekend?

By April 20, 2014

Follow me on:

Are you organized enough to have all your Easter shopping finished before today? If you are, you're smart because you'll avoid the busy liquor, grocery and gift stores that re-open the day after Good Friday. Tourist attractions such as the CN Tower and the Vancouver Aquarium and businesses within designated tourist areas do stay open Good Friday, but schools, libraries, government offices and most businesses shut down.

Saturday is business as usual.

Easter Sunday is the one other day, other than Christmas Day, when most everything, including tourist attractions, close down. Some convenience stores and pharmacies stay open, but it's random.

Things return to almost normal on Easter Monday when most businesses and banks re-open. Schools, libraries and government offices stay closed - some liquor stores may be open, but check ahead. Public transit runs on a regular schedule.

Best to call ahead to confirm holiday hours.
