May bank holiday 2022 opening times for B&Q, Wickes, Argos, Screwfix and more

The May bank holiday is quickly approaching and what better time to get on with all those odd jobs you’ve been putting off doing around the house since Christmas?

The early May bank holiday falls on May 2 this year, with the late May bank holiday being moved to June 2 to create a four day weekend for the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee.

A long weekend offers a perfect chance to do some home renovations, but DIY stores are likely to have differing operating hours.

To make sure you don’t get caught out by reduced bank holiday hours we’ve created a roundup of the opening times for your favourite DIY stores.

B&Q
