Will the supermarkets be open on Easter Sunday?
According to UK law, all large shops must close on Easter Sunday and Christmas Day in England, Wales and Northern Ireland.
This is unfortunate for those who were banking on a trip to the local large supermarket on Sunday, but smaller stores could remain open, typically with reduced opening hours.
The closures are due to rules stating large stores with a square meterage of more than 280 must not open on December 25 and Easter Sunday (April 3 in 2021) and there are significant fines for those who fail to comply with these requirements.
However, these rules do not apply to Scotland, as Easter Sunday is not considered a Bank Holiday, and stores will remain open as normal.
