BOOTS is a staple on most high streets and you may be wondering what times its stores are open this coming August bank holiday.
Some retailers choose to change their opening hours during a bank holiday to give staff some time to enjoy the break – which many will be craving over the sunny long weekend.
The upcoming bank holiday is at the end of the month – on August 28.
Boots has more than 2,000 stores across the country and opening times can vary across the UK.
You can find the opening hours for your nearest Boots by using the store locator tool on its website.
