Today (Monday 29 May) is the Spring Bank Holiday, which means millions of Britons will be enjoying a long weekend.
It also marks the start of the half-term holiday, with many parents planning staycations and getaways with their children over the next two weeks.
However, due to the bank holiday, a number of supermarkets and shops may have opening hours that differ from normal operating times.
Most supermarkets advise customers to check their local store’s opening time using store locators on their websites before visiting, as individual stores may have different hours.
Aldi stores in England and Wales will be open until 8pm today. In Scotland, branches will be open until 10pm as usual.
Some Tesco stores may have different opening hours today, so customers should check on the supermarket’s website before visiting.
A number of Tesco Extra stores will have reduced opening hours from 8am to 6pm in England and Wales, but will stay open later until 8pm in Scotland.
