(THUNDER BAY, ON) – Today is a holiday, Good Friday, which kicks off the Easter long weekend. Today, most stores are closed but below we have compiled a list of what is open and what is closed.
We will be expanding on this list as the community contributes by adding in their information in the comment section.
The Shoppers Drug Mart at the McIntyre Centre is open and open 24 hours a day.This location rarely closes but is definitely open today.
All the malls in Thunder Bay are closed today along with grocery stores and mainstream department stores. We are hoping people were prepared and ensured that they have enough food to make it through today.
All three levels of government offices such as municipal (city), provincial, and federal are closed today, so no paying fines, renewing drivers licenses etc.
The city’s transportation service known as the “city bus” is still open for service but are operating on a holiday schedule, so please check arrival times before departing.
