What are the Easter Sunday supermarket opening times? Here's what we know about Tesco, Sainsbury's, Asda and Aldi...

Easter is just around the corner, with thousands of supermarkets closing their doors over the weekend.

This year Easter falls on Sunday 9th April, with shops such as Tesco and Aldi usually staying open for Good Friday (7th April) and Easter Monday (10th April) which are bank holidays.

According to Government rules, stores in England and Wales larger than 280 square metres have to close on Easter Sunday.

Stores that are smaller can open but will have to open later and close earlier due to the celebrations, while opening times can also vary depending on location.
