From tomorrow up and down the country Brits will be enjoying a much needed three-day break with a bank holiday on Monday, May 31 extending our usual weekends.
With the weather set to improve for the weekend after days of rainy spells, many may take the opportunity to follow government guidelines and to socialise outside with friends by holding socially distanced picnics and BBQs.
This will mean that many of us will need to top up on our groceries, so here is a roundup of Asda’s opening hours this bank holiday weekend.
When does Asda open this bank holiday?
Most Asda stores will be following their usual opening hours for Saturday, May 29 and Sunday, May 30.
However, on Bank Holiday Monday most stores opening hours are set to change.
On this date, many Asda’s will open based on “seasonal” opening hours.
Stores may open later and close sooner than usual.
On the Bank Holiday Monday opening hours for most of Asda’s stores will be from 8am to 8pm.
Opening hours from Tuesday onwards will return to normal.
Most Asda stores typically open from 7am to 12am on weekdays some are even open 24 hours.
Be careful as opening hours can vary from store to store.
So before trekking to the shops, it’s worth double-checking the opening times of your nearest store by using Asda’s store locator here.
What are the rules for shopping at Asda?
Asda stores are currently asking customers to follow a number of safety measures to help stop the spread of Covid.
Shoppers must wear a mask in store unless they have a medical exemption.
Visitors are also asked to do their shops individually rather than in groups.
Only one member of your household should visit if possible.
Make sure to get your bank holiday shopping in early as stores are limiting the number of customers allowed in at any one time.
This might mean that you have to queue at busy times.
So you may find you need to join a queue to get into Sainsbury’s stores at busy times. Asda also advises that customers try to avoid shopping at busy times to allow for better social distancing in stores.
If customers are concerned about shopping in-store then orders can be placed online for your groceries to be delivered to your door.
When are the bank holiday dates for 2021?
Opening hours for most supermarkets will vary on bank holidays, so it is worth knowing when the next one is coming up so you aren’t caught out.
