Bristol supermarket opening times Jubilee bank holiday 2022: what time do Tesco, Morrisons and more open?

The eight main supermarket chains are set to operate at different operating hours throughout Bristol for the extended Queen’s Platinum Jubilee bank holiday weekend in June - including local examples for Tesco, Asda and Morrison’s stores.

As with every national and bank holiday, whether it be Christmas, Easter or May Day, supermarkets operate at different opening hours in order to accommodate time for staff to have some time off and celebrate.

That is still the case in 2022 when it comes to the four-day bank holiday weekend for the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee in June.

Combined with that of the Whitsun day off - which instead of being on the last Monday of May was moved to align with the Royal celebrations this year - the following dates will be affected: Thursday, 2 June (Whitsun), Friday, 3 June (Jubilee), Saturday, 4 June and Sunday, 5 June (weekend).

So, what are the opening and closing times for the big supermarkets in and around the Bristol area for this bank holiday weekend? Here is everything you need to know.
