WILKO shoppers can still nab essentials at the retailer during the Easter bank holiday weekend.
But shops are closing earlier than usual due to the coronavirus pandemic – here's all you need to know.
How can I find the opening hours for my local Wilko store this Easter weekend?
Closing times can vary from shop to shop, so it's always important to check your local branch.
You can do this by using the store locator tool on Wilko's website.
Wilko has 416 stores across the UK.
What are Wilko's Easter 2020 opening and closing hours?
All of Wilko's stores are currently open, although their opening hours are now typically 8.30 or 9am to 5pm Monday to Saturday.
This is so workers have extra time to clean and replenish stock, and applies even during Good Friday and Saturday, April 11.
Before the coronavirus pandemic, some shops would close as late as 8pm.
Sunday closing times remain the same for the time being, although Wilko shops will be closed this Easter Sunday.
If you're looking to go to Wilko on Easter Monday, keep in mind that shops will have the same opening hours as on Sundays.
The Sun has asked the retailer to clarify the opening hours on Sundays, but we haven't heard back yet.
Can I order online?
Yes, Wilko's website is still up and running, but shoppers may experience delays to their home delivery orders.
It's also reduced its delivery options and is now only offering standard delivery.
That means customers won't be able to use its next-day delivery service.
Wilko charges £5 for standard delivery if you spend under £30.
Orders over this amount are free.
Wilko has temporarily suspended its click and collect service.
When are the Easter holidays 2020?
Unlike Halloween, Christmas and Valentine’s Day which all fall on fixed dates, Easter can be any time between March 22 and April 25.
In 2020 it falls on Sunday, April 12.
Good Friday is therefore April 10, and the Easter Monday bank holiday is on April 13.
The date is decided by a complex set of calculations based on observations of the moon.
Schools usually get around two weeks off for the Easter break, as many kids were set to enjoy their holidays from April 3, and go back on April 20.
But that has all changed due to the coronavirus outbreak, with all schools currently shut until after the Easter festivities.
And they may not even return until after the summer holidays with COVID-19 continuing to plague the UK.
There remain some that still attend school, with children of parents considered key workers still having lessons.
They are expected to get the annual two-week break off, and you can specific dates for your area on your school or council's website.
