TAMPA (WFLA) – Whether you’re heading to a church service or an egg hunt, Easter is a holiday to celebrate with family and friends but last-minute errands on Easter Sunday may get tricky if you don’t do your homework.

For some big-name businesses, Sunday will mean normal operating hours, while others will modify their schedules or close completely.

Because the holiday falls on a Sunday, most banks, government buildings and schools will be closed as usual. The United States Postal Service doesn’t observe Easter as a holiday, so service will continue as normal, but your local post office may close on Sundays.
