Bank holiday weekends are about relaxing, going for long walks, spending time in the pub. Right? Wrong.

Bank holiday weekends are actually for spending hours perusing DIY shops for scary looking tools that you’re not quite sure how to operate. And then taking them home and hurting your hands.

If the latter is how you’ll be spending your time this weekend, look no further. Here’s our run down of which of the DIY retailers are open and when over the August bank holiday weekend.

Argos 

In the throes of being taking over by J Sainsbury, Argos remains independent – for now. 

Over the weekend, opening times are varying store by store. The locator is here, with detailed times for each store.

B&Q

All B&Q stores in the UK will open at the normal time on Monday, and close at 8pm.  To find your nearest B&Q, take a look at the website.

Currys PC World 

The electricals specialist’s opening times this weekend vary store-by-store, so you may be better off checking their website’s useful store locator, which lets you find the stores by address.

Halfords

If you fancy looking at a new bike this weekend, Halfords could be the place for you.

The out-of-town retailer is open as normal on Saturday and Sunday, with stores open on Monday but only until 6pm in the majority of cases.

The store locator details which store is open when.

Homebase

Homebase stores in England, Wales and Northern Ireland will be open from 7am to 8pm on Saturday and Monday, while normal hours will be operating on Sunday.

It may still be worth visiting the retailer’s website before making the trip.

Ikea

Ikea has “special” opening times for the bank holiday, and will generally be open from 10am to 10pm or 9pm on Monday in many cases. On Sunday, Ikea stores will generally be open from 11am to 5pm.

For up-to-date information on those hours, check out the Swedish retailer’s website.

John Lewis

Although the retailer prides itself on being never knowingly undersold, when it comes to bank holiday opening hours, it’s slightly less clear-cut.

Many stores appear to be operating slightly reduced hours on Monday, although in London most stores seem to be operating until 8pm, so make sure you time your visit by checking the store locator on its website

Wickes

The DIY giant is top of the shops when it comes to letting customers know when it is open and when it is not.

Most stores are open until 9pm on Saturday and Monday, although there are a handful of exceptions. You can check and see if your store is one of them right here.
