With the weather finally looking promising, May’s the perfect time to celebrate. It’s a month many of us get excited about, because it means double bank holidays! Having time off on both Monday 7 and 28 May gives people the chance to take a break and spend time with friends and family.

For many of our colleagues, May bank holidays aren’t much of a rest; you might be working over the weekend, and stores will be busy with shoppers filling their baskets with products to fuel their bank holiday get-togethers.

We know that the bank holiday will look different for many of our colleagues, but we also know that we all deserve time to unwind and catch up. Whether you’ve got time off for a long, lazy weekend with friends, or you’re squeezing those moments of fun in where you can, we’re here to help.

With another three-day weekend coming up, we’re not looking to splurge. This bank holiday’s all about getting together and having fun, and we don’t think it should cost the earth. With great value deals on the ultimate crowd-pleasers, we’re helping you make the most of the weekend without spending a fortune.

Planning a lazy lunch, or need a quick post-work dinner fix for those friends you forgot you’d invited over? Our Co-op Thin & Crispy Pizzas are 2 for £5, giving you more time to spend catching up. A surprise extra guest? Add our Irresistible Coleslaw into the mix (£1), and you’ve still got a worthy plateful for all.

Or is it your friends’ turn to host? Take over a bag of our Irresistible Sea Salt & Chardonnay Vinegar Crisps (£1) to nibble on, since last time you got so excited sharing news, you didn’t eat ‘til 10pm. Finish the night with a tub of Ben & Jerry’s – at half price it’d be rude not to!

Hoping and wishing for enough sun for a BBQ? Pop some bottles of Diet Coke 1.25l (£1) and Budweiser 4x300ml (£4) in the fridge, so if the weather does turn out, you can spring straight into action with ice cold refreshment.

We’ve got everything you need to get together this bank holiday, and our great deals are in store now. Why not stock up on everything for a simple solution to that bank holiday spread?

Whether you’re stocking up for the weekend or making the most of while you’ve got the time, make the most of the bank holiday, your way.

  1. Why don’t we ever have deals on healthy food? Pizza, crisps, beer and ice cream 🙁

    • Hi John, thanks for your comment – it’s a great question! These deals were based on what research has shown a lot of our customers like to treat themselves with, and buy during bank holidays. If you’re on the lookout for good value on healthy food, don’t forget we’ve always got something to get excited about with our Fresh Three.
