SUPERMARKET opening times are slightly different over the bank holiday weekend.
But if you need to stock up on supplies, we explain everything you need to know.

Opening times will vary between stores.
Aldi opening times
Aldi is keeping its doors open over the bank holiday, although opening hours have been reduced slightly.
On the Bank Holiday Monday, it will open from 8am and close two hours early at 8pm.
