Easter 2015 Opening Hours For Tesco, Sainsbury's, Asda And DIY Stores

Here comes Easter, a long weekend during which it is traditional to celebrate the resurrection of Jesus, eat your own weight in chocolate eggs and grapple with the horror that is public transport.

Additionally, one must negotiate the morass that is bank holiday opening hours.

Because running out of wine/ chocolate/ drill bits and being faced with a landscape of shuttered shops is a decidedly bleak prospect indeed.
