Most Prince Edward Island businesses will be open on Natal Day, Aug. 2, but there are some government-related closures that could affect some services.

Federal government employees get the day off, but not all provincial employees on the Island will.

The provincial government recognizes this date as a civic holiday and offices in the Prince County area are closed for the day. The rest of the provincial government instead gets Aug. 20 off for the Gold Cup Parade.

Here is a list of what's open and closed on Aug. 2 for some of the Island's main food stores and other businesses and public services.

  • Municipal offices in Charlottetown and Summerside are closed. (This means parking commissionaires are off for the day, too.)

  • Federal government offices are closed.

  • Provincial offices in Prince County are closed. (Offices in Queens and Kings counties will be open, but will be closed on Aug. 20 instead.)

  • P.E.I. Public Library branches in Prince County will be closed but all other libraries will be open for regular hours.

  • Canada Post will not have delivery service.

  • Sobeys stores are open regular hours.

  • Atlantic Superstores are open regular hours.
