We explain all you need to know about its opening hours – and if you can still order online.

Is Boots open over the Bank Holiday?

Usually, Boots stores are open from as early as 7am and close between 8pm and 10pm.

When we used Boots’ store locator tool on its website, we saw that most of its shops are staying open.

But opening times may vary, with some stores opening later and closing earlier – so it’s best to check ahead with your local branch to make sure you’re not caught out.

You’ll also want to use the store locator tool to see whether your local Boots pharmacy will be open. 

Simply type in your postcode and it will be able to tell you the specific opening times for that branch.

You can also see suggestions for alternative stores nearby, should your nearest store be closed.

If your closest Boots pharmacy is located within a shopping centre, it is advisable to check the opening times of the precinct as well.

Is Boots still delivering over the Bank Holiday?

If you want to avoid shopping in stores over the Bank Holiday, you can order as normal on the Boots website.

Delivery is free if you spend £25 or more, otherwise it costs £3.50 to get your haul delivered home.

Or you can use the retailer’s click and collect service, which is free if you spend £15 or more and collect it from the store – otherwise it will cost you £1.50.

You’ll usually get your package delivered within three working days.

But you’ll have to allow another day on top of this because it’s a Bank Holiday.
