With Easter just around the corner, many of us will enjoy the long four day weekend with our family and friends, Easter eggs and food. But with the bumper bank holiday, it might be hard to keep track of when supermarkets are open for the essential long weekend shopping.
In 2023, Good Friday falls on April 7, with Easter Sunday on April 9 and Easter Monday on April 10. With both Friday and Monday being bank holidays, supermarkets tend to change their opening times so people can spend time with their families.
The opening hours will vary for each supermarket in Birmingham over the Easter weekend, so while general hours are available, it’s always worth double checking with your local store before heading out.
