September 19 has been declared a public holiday across the United Kingdom. A number of retailers and restaurants have announced they’re closing for the day, including Greggs, Harrods, John Lewis, Marks and Spencer, Asda and Primark.
Pizza Express, which has about 350 restaurants around the UK, will be closed until 3 pm Monday to allow employees “to pay tribute to Her Majesty the Queen,” according to a spokesperson.
London’s financial markets and banks will also be closed Monday for the last day of national mourning.
McDonald’s cautioned that “hours and services may vary” after it re-opens Monday evening and encouraged customers to check its app for latest information.
The UK government has said the decision on whether to close is a matter for individual businesses. Supermarkets and restaurants typically remain open on public holidays.
