What can I get at the pharmacy during a bank holiday?

Pharmacies don't just provide prescribed medicines, and sell various other things you can buy from other shops.

Some big pharmacies have a wide range of beauty products and even stationery for example.

So if you're looking for a last-minute present like a perfume or you've run out of a lipstick which you desperately need, then the pharmacy might be a good place to look for it.

They also sell hair products and baby products.

So if one of the shops near you is not open, you can quickly run to a pharmacy to get many of the things you might need.

When are the Bank Holiday dates in 2022?

Brits will have celebrated NINE bank holidays by the end of 2022.

We started off the year with a long weekend, after New Year's Day fell on a Saturday and so January 3, 2022 was used as a Substitute Day.

Then the UK enjoyed a very hot weekend in April as they celebrated Good Friday on April 15 and Easter Sunday on April 17, 2022.

Soon after, the Early May Bank Holiday came on May 2, 2022.

June 2 was the Spring Bank Holiday and there was an additional bank holiday on June 3, 2022 to celebrate the Platinum Jubilee.
