DIY stores May bank holiday opening times – here's what time B&Q, Homebase and Wickes is open on Monday

If you plan to use the three-day weekend to carry out some home renovations, you'll be pleased to know that you can still nab essentials at the major DIY stores.

They'll operate slightly different opening hours though – we explain all you need to know.


B&Q has confirmed to The Sun that its stores will typically be open from 8am until 6pm on Saturday and from 10am until 4pm on Sunday.

On bank holiday Monday, stores will be open as usual from 8am until 6pm although this varies depending on the store.

B&Q has reopened all 288 of its stores nationwide although staff and customers will have to follow strict social distancing measures.


Homebase has confirmed that its stores will be open as usual this bank holiday weekend.

It means that shops are open from 9am until 6pm Monday to Saturday.

And they are typically open from 10am to 4pm on Sundays, although it varies between stores.

Homebase reopened all 164 UK stores on May 2.


Screwfix hasn't yet confirmed what its opening hours are this bank holiday, but we expect them to be similar to how they were the last bank holiday on May 8.

At the time, Screwfix stores opened from 8am until 5pm on the bank holiday.

These are its usual opening hours Monday to Saturday, except for on Wednesdays when shops close at 4pm.

Stores are then open 9am to 4pm on Sundays.


Wickes hasn't confirmed what its opening hours are this bank holiday either, so we'll update this article once we hear back.

During the last bank holiday weekend, its stores were open from 7am until 6pm Monday to Saturday.

Wickes has since reduced its opening hours from either 7am or 8am until 4pm or 5pm Monday to Saturday.

While its Sunday trading hours remain the same at 10am to 4pm.

Some stores remain closed due to low staffing levels so it's worth finding out what your local is doing here.

As of May 14, Wickes began a phased reopening of roughly 220 stores.
