The May Day bank holiday weekend is almost upon us, which means many of us will be off work on Monday, May 2.
With some extra time off work to look forward to, it can be easy to forget to stock up on our groceries and essentials until we realise we’ve run out of all important things in the kitchen or bathroom.
As with most major holidays, supermarkets and shops will be working on altered hours over the May bank holiday. So, it’s important that customers prepare themselves by checking the opening and closing times of their nearest stores.
For Asda shoppers, here’s what they need to know about the chain’s hours.
What are opening and closing times for Asda?
Asda opening hours will vary massively from store to store across the UK for the May Day bank holiday. While most stores are likely to open at normal hours, it’s pretty safe to assume that all of them will close early on May 2.
For superstores, which usually open at 6am and close at midnight, the bank holiday hours will see them open at normal times but close earlier, by 8pm. Some stores may even close as early as 5pm.
The change in hours is only for Monday May 2, with stores remaining open as normal for the rest of the bank holiday weekend.
Pretty much all stores will shut earlier than usual on Monday, however, it’s always worth double checking to make sure regarding specific stores near you.
