Waitrose will close many of its stores on Sunday so you'll want to make a note of their opening times before the festivities begin.

The posh supermarket has more than 300 stores across the UK and you can find your local by using the store locator tool on its website.

When is Waitrose open over Easter ?

Most Waitrose supermarkets will be open on Good Friday (April 7) and Easter Monday (April 1).
