EASTER is coming soon and that means big family gatherings, roast dinners, hunting for chocolate eggs and probably more than one trip to the shops for supplies.
Here’s all the info on when your local Sainsbury’s will be open during the holidays.

How can I find the opening hours for my local Sainsbury’s store?
Closing times vary from store to store, so it’s always important to check your local branch.
You can do this using the store finder on their website.
When is Sainsbury’s open over Easter?
All Sainsbury’s stores will be open on Easter Saturday.
On bank holiday Monday, April 22, some stores will be working reduced hours while others – particularly in London – will resume service as usual.
Make sure you check yours to be sure, as times vary shop to shop.
Bear in mind that all Sainsbury’s supermarkets in England, Wales and Northern Ireland will be closed for Easter Sunday on April 21 – but don’t panic if you need to buy a last minute Easter egg most of the retailer’s convenience stores and petrol filling stations should still be open.

When are the Easter holidays 2019?
This year Good Friday falls on April 19 and Easter Monday is on April 22.
Because Easter is late this year, in most areas kids will be off for the two weeks before for the Easter break
That means they break up on Friday, April 5, and go back on Easter Tuesday, April 23 – which is also St George’s Day in England.
With the weekends and the bank holiday, that stretches to 17 days.
Other schools might take the two weeks either side of Easter so the two bank holidays fall within the Easter holidays.
Dates vary in different areas so you should check your school or council’s website.
