It’s Easter and some stores may be open in the United States, along with various restaurants, but a few things won’t. There will be no mail delivery (it’s Sunday of course), all federal offices and courts will be closed and the banks are closed. Banks that will be closed include Capital One, BB&T, City National Bank, Santander Bank, Union Bank, Bank of America, Citibank, SunTrust, and HSBC, along with most credit unions. Chase, TD Bank, Wells Fargo, PNC, and Sun Bank are also closed.

As for Easter Monday, in Canada, there is no mail, public libraries are shut down and government offices are closed. Grocery stores and malls are said to be open. Many banks observe Easter Monday and are closed, but you can contact your local branch to see if that’s the case.

Bank branches will re-open that day, for April 6, 2015 in the U.S. State offices, county courts and/or offices, and colleges are open. In addition, garbage removal should be on schedule, unless announced by your local area.

When it comes to credit union exceptions, Saving Advice writes:

Credit Unions are similar to banks when it comes to the days they are open and closed, and most close on federal holidays.

As for ways to get around your bank being closed, Saving Advice reports:

It’s still possible to do many general banking transactions through an ATM, your mobile phone or on the bank’s website. While the bank may be physically closed, ATMs, apps and websites can normally be used 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. It won’t be possible to do all banking transactions through one of these means, but you can do many of the basic banking functions.

Remember that if you deposit a check into an ATM on Easter, it may take until the next business day to process.
