Tesco Easter opening hours 2020: Bank holiday opening times and home delivery advice

IT might be Good Friday tomorrow, but there's still plenty of time to get an Easter shop in if you're planning a Sunday roast.

Tesco is keeping it's doors open on Friday, Saturday and Monday - here's everything you need to know.

Is Tesco open over Easter?

Opening hours at Tesco will depend on the type of store you're visiting.

The supermarket has limited its general opening hours with stores closing at 10pm to help stop the spread of coronavirus.

On top of that, the Easter weekend means even more changes to opening times.

The majority of locations will be open except on the Sunday when stores in England and Wales will be shut.

Here's the opening hours for the whole weekend:

Good Friday - April 10

Fridays between 9am-10am are set aside for more vulnerable and elderly customers and Tesco is asking other customers not to shop then

Saturday - April 11

Easter Sunday - April 12

Easter Monday

While Tesco has confirmed that these are its typical opening hours, it says that some hours may vary by store, so you need to check the store locator.

Is Tesco doing home delivery?

Home delivery is operating as normal over the Easter break, but coronavirus means you might struggle to get a slot.

Each store has a limited number of delivery slots which are available on a first come, first serve basis. Because of recent increased customer demand, Tesco says its slots are being booked up faster than normal.

Lots of stores also offer Click+Collect slots which may be suitable for you if you’re still looking to place an order.

You can also book a slot in advance and add a few items to your basket to secure it, which you can go back and update later.

At the time of writing there were no delivery slots available before April 27.

When are the Easter holidays 2019?

Good Friday falls on April 10 this year, while Easter Monday is on April 13.

Most schools have broken up for the holidays, but dates vary in different areas so you should check your school or council's website.

It is not yet clear whether schools will open after the Easter break or if they will remain closed because of coronavirus.
