THE Post Office provides essential services including sending letters and withdrawing cash.
But will its branches be open on the May Bank holiday Monday? We explain.
Is the Post Office open during the early May Bank Holiday?
Many Post Offices will be open as normal throughout the May Bank Holiday weekend.
Normally the Post Office is shut on Sundays and Bank Holidays.
So we would recommend checking your local branch’s individual operating hours this weekend before setting out.
Customers can check if their local branch is open and for what hours on the Post Office website.
