If you’re planning a spot of DIY this bank holiday, you may be wondering what shops will be open.
The long weekend is prime time for home improvements, and millions of families are expected to hit the high streets for discounts on those last summer tweaks around the house.
But what time will your local store open?
We explain the opening times for hardware stores such as B&Q, Wickes, Screwfix and Homebase below.
The August bank holiday always falls on the last Monday of the month – this year it’s on Monday, August 30 – see when food chains will open this weekend, here.
B&Q opening times do vary across the UK, with most shops open from either 7am or 8am, Monday to Saturday, before closing 12 hours later at 7pm or 8pm.
The good news is, the DIY chain doesn’t appear to have adjusted its opening times for this bank holiday Monday, according to its store finder tool.
You should still check the B&Q website to bring up opening times for your local shop, just to be sure.
B&Q has 300 stores in the UK.
Wickes also doesn’t appear to have adjusted its opening hours for this Monday.
When we checked its online store finder tool today, most shops said they’ll be open from 7am to 8pm.
Again, as this does vary, do double check by entering your postcode on the Wickes website.
There are now more than 230 Wickes stores throughout the UK.
Screwfix fans shouldn’t notice any change to its opening times, if its store locator tool is anything to go by.
The hardware chain typically opens 7am to 8pm, Monday to Saturday, and this doesn’t appear to be different for this Monday.
Use the Screwfix online finder tool to see details of your nearest shop.
There are more than 700 Screwfix outlets in the UK.
If you’re planning a trip to Homebase, the DIY retailer should be open under its regular hours this bank holiday.
This means your local shop should open around 9am and shut between 6pm and 7pm.
As opening times do vary, check the Homebase store finder tool online for more information.
Homebase has 150 shops.
