Is the Post Office open during the Early May bank holiday?

As with many stores, Post Office opening hours may vary over the bank holiday.

So if you have some important post to send, it may be worth holding off as many Post Offices close to give their workers a day of during bank holidays.

In addition to sending letters and parcels, your local Post Office also provides access to various banking services.

This allows you to make withdrawals, deposits, balance inquiries, and more.

Customers can check a branch’s local Facebook page for information about opening hours or use the Post Office’s online branch locator tool.

It is important to note that thousands of branches are typically located inside convenience stores and it is expected that many of these will remain open on the Early May bank holiday.

It is worth remembering that Royal Mail won’t be doing any collections or deliveries on the Early May bank holiday Monday.
