Poundland Easter opening hours 2020: Bank holiday opening times and advice

IF you need to buy some last-minute essentials this Easter, you'll be pleased to know that Poundland stores remain open.

Although, the retailer is closing 100 shops due to the coronavirus crisis while opening hours of others have slightly changed - here's all you need to know.

How can I find the opening hours for my local Poundland store this Easter weekend?

The opening times at Poundland vary between shops, so it's worth checking with your local branch before making the trip.

Poundland has over 800 stores in the UK. You can find your nearest one including opening hours by using the store locator tool on its website.

What are Poundland's Easter 2020 opening and closing hours?

Most Poundland stores are operating their regular hours in spite of the coronavirus crisis, meaning many are open 8am to 8pm Monday to Saturday.

During Easter, stores will typically open their doors between 10am and 4pm on Good Friday and Easter Monday.

But the retailer told The Sun that they do vary, so it's important to check in advance.

All Poundland stores will then remain shut on Easter Sunday.

Can I order online?

No, Poundland currently doesn't offer home delivery so you'll need to pop by one of its stores.

If you're after something particular, you can browse the product it sells on Poundland's website.

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.
