Shoppers wanting to fit a food shop in over the long Easter weekend will need to keep an eye on changed opening times as supermarkets operate on reduced hours over the bank holidays.

Government rules for shops in England and Wales mean, like on Christmas Day, anywhere over 280 square metres must stay closed on Easter Sunday but are able to fully reopen to shoppers in time for the bank holiday Monday.

However, for anyone craving an Easter McDonald’s, most of the fast food restaurants are running on normal hours, meaning you can pick up a Big Mac throughout most of the day.

Supermarkets will see reduced hours throughout Easter Sunday and Monday
