ALDI is changing its opening hours for shoppers again this week because of Easter and the bank holidays.
The discounter has already reduced opening times to help re-stock shop shelves due to the coronavirus crisis – here's all you need to know.
How can I find the opening hours for my local Aldi store this Easter weekend?
Closing times can vary from shop to shop, so it's always important to check your local branch.
You can do this using the store finder on Aldi's website.
The store finder will also provide further information about the store's facilities and stock.
The supermarket chain has more than 840 stores across the UK.
What are Aldi's Easter 2020 opening and closing hours?
Aldi stores across the UK usually open from 8am every day, and Easter is no exception.
Below are the discounter's opening hours over the bank holiday weekend.
Good Friday, April 10: 8am – 8pm
Saturday, April 11: 8am – 8pm
Easter Sunday, April 12: CLOSED
Easter Monday, April 13: 8am – 8pm
Due to the coronavirus pandemic, Aldi stores are currently open 07.30 – 8am only for elderly and vulnerable customers.
This applies Mondays to Saturdays, including over Easter.
Can I order online?
Yes, Aldi’s online delivery service is currently running as normal, although it only sells non-food items on its website.
Due to increased demand, the timeframe for deliveries has also been extended from three to 10 working days.
A standard delivery is free for orders over £20 and costs £2.95 for orders under £20.
For £3.95, you can get a next day delivery on any order placed before 7pm on Monday-Friday.
When are the Easter holidays 2020?
Unlike Halloween, Christmas and Valentine’s Day which all fall on fixed dates, Easter can be any time between March 22 and April 25.
In 2020 it falls on Sunday, April 12.
Good Friday is therefore April 10, and the Easter Monday bank holiday is on April 13.
The date is decided by a complex set of calculations based on observations of the moon.
Schools usually get around two weeks off for the Easter break, as many kids were set to enjoy their holidays from April 3, and go back on April 20.
But that has all changed due to the coronavirus outbreak, with all schools currently shut until after the Easter festivities.
And they may not even return until after the summer holidays with COVID-19 continuing to plague the UK.
There remain some that still attend school, with children of parents considered key workers still having lessons.
They are expected to get the annual two-week break off, and you can specific dates for your area on your school or council's website.
