The UK is gearing up to celebrate Her Majesty The Queen’s 70th anniversary as monarch – but how’s that going to affect your shopping schedule.

With a bumper, four-day bank holiday weekend of celebrations on the cards, including barbeques and street parties and many raised glasses, running out of food and drink is just not an option.

So, if you’d like to avoid getting caught short on the Platinum Jubilee refreshments front during the Platinum Jubilee, make sure you’ve checked when the supermarkets are going to be closed over the bank holiday.

Every bank holiday in 2022

When is the Platinum Jubilee bank holiday weekend?

The late May bank holiday has been moved to Thursday, June 2, and an additional bank holiday has been added on Friday, June 3, meaning there will be a bonus four-day weekend to celebrate the Jubilee.

The historic event will reflect on Her Majesty’s reign, and her impact on the UK and the world since 1952.

If you usually do your Sainsbury’s shop on a Thursday or Friday, you’ll be pleased to know the bank holidays shouldn’t have a massive effect on your routine.

It’s just worth noting that if you usually head to the aisles later in the day, you may find your local branch has shut up shop a little earlier – for instance, if your nearest Sainsbury’s usually closes at 10pm, it’s likely this will be brought forward to 8pm.
