The May Bank Holiday is fast approaching and what better time to get on with all those odd jobs you’ve been putting off around the house since Christmas?
The early May bank holiday falls on 2nd May this year, with the end of May bank holiday being moved to 2nd June to make a four day weekend for the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee.
A long weekend offers a perfect opportunity to do some renovation work, but hardware stores are likely to have different opening times.
So that you are not surprised by reduced opening hours on public holidays, we have compiled a summary of the opening hours of your favorite DIY stores.
B&Q is usually open during regular business hours on bank holidays and this doesn’t seem to change for the upcoming May bank holiday.
This means that do-it-yourselfers can head to B&M between 8am and 8pm on bank holiday Mondays, although opening hours may vary from store to store.
Check your local store with the B&Q Find Store tool.
Wickes will also be open as usual for the May bank holiday. The regular shop opening times are from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m.
Keep in mind that local opening hours may vary, so use Wickes’ store locator tool before heading out.
