IF you’re planning some DIY this bank holiday weekend then you may need to check the opening times of your local store.
Homebase is open on May 3 but trading hours might be different from normal where you live.
When is Homebase open over the early May bank holiday?
Homebase is usually open from around 9am to 8pm for all your construction, gardening and decorating needs.
And on Sunday the DIY store is open from 10am to 4pm in most places and some stores are open from 11am to 5pm.
But on the upcoming bank holiday the store is altering its opening hours slightly, so some stores like the one in Bracknell, is opening an hour earlier at 8am and closing an hour earlier too at 7pm.
In Milton Keynes the store is also closing an hour earlier for a 7pm finish and it opens its doors at 8am.
So shoppers won’t lose any time spent in the store, but you’ll want to be aware of the changes, especially if you like to shop early in the morning or later in the evening.
You can check the hours of your local Homebase with the store finder to make sure you avoid disappointment if yours is closed on the day.
Is Homebase doing delivery over the Bank Holiday?
Delivery is free for most items but if you’re after something small like paint pots it could take up to seven days to reach you, so you won’t have your items in time for the bank holiday anyway.
You can get next and named day delivery from £6 though, but it depends on what you buy as to whether this service is offered.
If you can’t stand the wait though, products that are in stock within a store can be purchased with click and collect, and your items can be ready for you to collect within one hour.
So you could head down to your local store and pick up an order same day during the hours its open on the bank holiday – the service is free too.

If you’re after revamping your home on a budget then Very is hosting a bank holiday sale where you can pick up furniture at low costs.
And other homeware stores have been slashing their prices so you can pick up discount outdoor furniture from the likes of B&M – like a patio set the retailer is selling for £70 that was £100.
And it’s not just the homeware retailers that are slashing prices this weekend, Boots has a major 70% off sale on right now – we know how we’ll be spending the day-off.
