Monday 28 August is the August Bank Holiday, which means millions of Britons will be enjoying a long weekend.

It also marks the last bank holiday for the rest of the year, until Christmas in December.

On account of the public holiday, a number of supermarkets and shops might have opening hours that differ from their normal operating times.

Most supermarkets advise customers to check their local store’s opening time using store locators on their websites before visiting, as individual stores may have different hours.

Here are the opening times for Aldi, Tesco, Morrisons, Sainsbury’s, Waitrose and more:


Aldi stores in England and Wales will be open from 8am until 8pm on Monday 28 August. In Scotland, branches will be open until 10pm as usual.
