ALDI stores will remain open this August bank holiday weekend, but with slightly different opening hours.
We explain all you need to know if you need to pick up some essentials at the discounter.
The August bank holiday falls on the final day of the month, August 31 (today!), and always takes place on the last Monday of August.
The bank holiday was first introduced to give us all a bit more time to enjoy the sunny summer.
Up until 1971, it always took place on the first Monday of August, but it was eventually moved as it clashed with the traditional two-week shut-down that many companies went through in the summer.

Some of the biggest annual sales launch this weekend, here’s where to shop smart.
It’s unlikely you’ll get to enjoy hot weather though, as a “polar plunge” is set to bring -1C frost in what could be the coldest August bank holiday in 40 years.
