MILLIONS of people will get to enjoy a day off on bank holidays in August.

Brits will be treated to a day off at the end of the month on August 28, 2023.

When you can head out to do your grocery shopping will depend on the individual opening hours of each supermarket.

Bear in mind though that some of the individual stores may have different opening and closing hours, so do check before heading out.

You can check this on most of the supermarket chains' websites, with the local hours for each store.

Below we outline what each supermarket is doing over each of the bank holidays.

However, Tesco said the majority of its larger stores will be open from 8am to 6pm on August 28 while some may be open until 8pm.
