SAINSBURY’S shoppers will want to make a note of the supermarket’s festive opening hours.
Christmas Day falls on a Sunday this year, meaning there is an extra bank holiday on the following Tuesday, December 27.
This is on top of the usual Boxing Day bank holiday on Monday, December 26.
To find your nearest store’s specific opening hours, you can use the locator tool on the Sainsbury’s website.
But times might change slightly from the norm over the bank holiday so we’ve rounded up everything you need to know.
Is Sainsbury’s open over the Christmas Bank Holiday?
All Sainsbury’s supermarkets will be closed on Christmas Day.
The majority will then be open on Boxing Day between 10am and 5pm.
On December 27, most are open from 8am to 8pm, but opening hours will vary by store.
So it is best to check the store locator on the website to avoid a wasted trip.
For the rest of the week, on December 28, 29 and 30, most stores will trade normal hours.
On New Year’s Eve, the majority of Sainsbury’s shops will be open from 7am to 7pm and convenience stores will be closing at 9pm.
The next day (January 1), most supermarkets will be open between 10am and 4pm.
Convenience stores will be trading between 9am and 9pm.
Opening hours can vary though, so Sainsbury’s advises customers to check the website for the latest details for their area.
Are shops closed on the Bank Holiday?
The majority of retailers have confirmed the days people will be able to shop in their stores over the Christmas period.
Most shops and supermarkets will be closed for certain days in order to give staff some much-needed time off.
Almost all stores across the UK are shut on Christmas Day, but there are also a handful of retailers that won’t open on Boxing Day either.
Opening hours can vary from branch to branch, so check your local store times before you make the trip.
Most big retailers will have their opening times listed on their websites.
We’ve rounded up a full list of high street shops and supermarkets’ opening and closing times over the festive period.
