Don’t panic if you run out of potatoes, the superstores are still open at these times
BANK holidays are a welcome treat for most Brits – and next one is just around the corner on Monday May 29.
With friends and family to cater for, it is important you know what time your local supermarket is open so you’re not caught short.
When is Waitrose open for May Day?
Every Waitrose supermarket has slightly different opening hours, with times varying between 7am and 10pm.
Sunday: Normal Sunday opening hours, 10am-4pm or 11am-5pm.
Bank Holiday Monday: Revised holiday opening hours, 9am-6pm or 8pm for most stores.
How can I find the opening hours for my local Waitrose store?
Opening times do vary between individual supermarkets, so it’s a good idea to check the store finder on Waitrose’s website.
But before planning that BBQ, you might want to catch up on the decidedly changeable weather forecast for bank holiday Monday.

The Government website has more details on what your worker’s rights are in regards to public holidays.
