B&M Easter 2021 opening times: When are stores open over the bank holiday weekend?

B&M will be shutting for Easter Sunday this year but don't worry you can still pick up a bank holiday bargain over the rest of the weekend.

The bargain retailer is closing its doors this Sunday so you'll have to be quick to pick up any deals before the chocolate filled festivities begin.

The bargain shop chain has roughly 650 stores still open across the UK despite the lockdown and covid restrictions.

The store can remain opening as it is classed an "essential retailer" under the current government guidance.

Which is just as well, as B&M is stocking all kinds of Easter bargains including dog outfits to dress your pooch up as as a festive bunny this weekend for £6.

What are B&M's Easter 2021 opening and closing hours?

Closing times can vary from shop to shop, so it's always important to check your local branch.

Most of B&M's stores are open seven days a week, typically between 8am to 8pm from Monday to Saturday.

On a normal Sunday this is usually shortened to 10am – 4pm though.

With the festive weekend approaching the hours remain mostly unchanged, except that all the stores will be closed entirely to shoppers this Sunday only.

You can still browse the bargain home store over the rest of the weekend, with the eight until eight hours unchanged on Good Friday and bank holiday Monday.

If you're keen to go shopping with your time off work this weekend, simply check the opening hours for your local store on B&M's website.

Can I order online?

No, B&M doesn't currently offer home delivery so you'll have to pop by one of its stores if you're after some of their items.

You can use the website to browse and check if an item you're after is in stock in-store though, simply enter your postcode when prompted next to the product you're keen to get your hands on.

It does offer some garden services for online delivery but you will have to head to their specialised garden buildings site if you're keen to spruce up your back yard in time for the warm bank holiday weather.

When are the Easter holidays this year?

This year the spring bank holiday weekend falls earlier than it did in 2020, in the first week of April.
