EASTER 2019 is the perfect time to get those DIY tasks ticked off the list by taking advantage of the four-day weekend.
But what if you run out of paint or need a tool that’s not in the shed? Here’s when you’ll be able to pop out to your local B&Q this Bank Holiday weekend.
How can I find the opening hours of my nearest B&Q store?
Opening times do vary across the country, depending on the size and location of each store.
To find out where your nearest store is and what time it opens, you can use the B&Q store finder.
You can also use the store finder to get more information about the store, including facilities and stock.
It’s always a good idea to check your nearest store’s opening times before you visit.
Is B&Q open over Easter 2019?
It is customary that businesses and shops were shut on Easter Sunday across England, Wales and Northern Ireland.
On Good Friday and Easter Saturday stores will open and close and normal time – but they will be closed on Easter Sunday. (The same is largely true of Homebase’s opening times.)
However, on Easter Monday, all stores are open as usual, closing at 7pm.
When are the Easter holidays 2019?
Good Friday was yesterday on April 19. Easter Sunday is tomorrow, April 21 with Easter Monday falling the day after on April 22.
Because Easter is late this year, in most areas kids will be off for the two weeks before for the Easter break
Having broken up on on Friday, April 5, this means they will go back on Easter Tuesday, April 23 – which is also St George’s Day in England.
With the weekends and the bank holiday, that stretches to 17 days.
Other schools might take the two weeks either side of Easter so the two bank holidays fall within the Easter holidays.
Dates vary in different areas so you should check your school, council’s website or the Government’s postcode checker.
