Consumption Mercadona, Lidl, Carrefour... Supermarket hours on Good Thursday and Good Friday

Easter 2023 is underway. From April 2 (Palm Sunday) and April 9 (Easter Sunday), millions of Spaniards will take advantage of the holidays approved by the autonomous communities to rest and travel. However, the calendar is not the same for the entire territory, which makes it essential to know the hours of the main supermarket chains during these days.

To begin with, you have to take into account where Holy Thursday (April 6) is a holiday. On that day, only two autonomous communities, Catalonia and the Valencian Community, have a working day, so the supermarkets in those regions will open at their usual hours.

In contrast, Holy Thursday is a holiday in 15 autonomous communities, in addition to Ceuta and Melilla: Andalusia, Aragon, Asturias, the Balearic Islands, the Canary Islands, Cantabria, Castilla-La Mancha, Castilla y León, Extremadura, Galicia, the Community of Madrid, Murcia, Navarra, Basque Country, La Rioja. Most commercial establishments in those areas of Spain will remain closed, although some will open, some with special hours and others even with normal hours. As we will see below, it is time to review the policy approved by each chain and its stores regarding opening on Sundays and holidays.

One day later, on April 7, it is Good Friday, it is the only national holiday in Easter, so it is a non-working day throughout the Spanish territory. Once again, it is worth being informed about the opening and closing of supermarkets on that day. And it is that even some chain that does not usually open on holidays, will open some of the centers that it has in tourist places.

The Mercadona supermarket chain has a policy of not opening on Sundays and holidays. In view of Easter 2023, in addition to Palm Sunday and Easter Sunday, all the establishments of the Valencian chain in Spain remain closed on Good Friday. On the other hand, the stores located in Catalonia and the Valencian Community do open on Holy Thursday at their normal hours (from 9:00 a.m. to 9:30 p.m.).

However, there are some exceptions. Mercadona opens some supermarkets on Good Friday, until noon, in some places with a high influx of tourists, so it is recommended to consult the Mercadona store search engine (regular business hours: from 9:00 a.m. to 9:30 p.m.).

Carrefour establishments tend to open on Sundays and some holidays, including Good Friday, always depending on the number of weekends and holidays with business hours approved by each autonomous community. There will be hypermarkets, as well as other types of establishments, such as Carrefour Express, which open throughout Holy Week and others that will close on Holy Thursday, Good Friday and even on Easter Monday.

Dia supermarkets have flexibility in their opening hours, including Sundays and holidays, so some stores will be open even on Good Friday. It is time to consult the Dia store search engine to check the special hours of each establishment during Easter (Usual hours: from 9:00 a.m. to 9:30 p.m.).

The policy of opening on Sundays and public holidays in Alcampo will also be applied at Easter, except in some centers in certain autonomous communities. In general, they are open from 9:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m. (or 10:00 p.m.) from Monday to Saturday and from 10:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m. on Sundays; on Easter holidays, opening hours may be limited to the morning in some cases.

The usual hours of the stores of this chain are from 9:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m. (except Sundays and holidays).

Some centers have also modified their usual hours this week. Consum store search engine.
