If you’re looking to cook some big family meals over the weekend make sure you stock up on your groceries beforehand. Most grocers will be closed but some may still be open. Again, call your local grocer ahead of time and double check their schedule.
If you’re eating out this long weekend you should be in luck as restaurants are expected to have their doors open. But we still suggest calling ahead and making sure where you plan to eat is open.
This Easter long weekend all banks, government offices and Canada Post will be closed.
If you’re looking to grab some drinks over the weekend you won’t be able to. All LCBO and Beer Store locations will be closed both Good Friday and Easter Sunday.
Don’t worry, the TTC and GO Transit will still be running over the long weekend, but expect holiday scheduling on Friday.
