ASOS has confirmed it won't be delivering parcels on Monday, 19 September.
On the day of the Queen's funeral, the fashion retailer will not be delivering customer orders, as most of its staff and delivery partners will not be working.
“The majority of ASOS staff will not be working and our carrier partners will not be delivering – customer delivery schedules will be updated accordingly.”
They also explained that if customers had selected Monday as their nominated delivery day, they would be contacted in regards to a refund.
Tyla has reached out to ASOS for further comment.
While Monday is officially a bank holiday, the government has advised that it is up to individual businesses if they want to remain open or close.
Most supermarket chains and retail stores have opted to close on Monday, while some supermarkets and petrol stations are remaining closed until 5pm, before opening in the evening.
McDonald's and Domino's have also announced they will be closed on Monday, out of respect for Her Majesty the Queen.
Since the bank holiday was announced, many have been wondering if they will automatically be entitled to a day off. But according to government guidelines, this will be at the discretion of individual businesses.
The UK government stated: “This is a matter for discussion between individuals and their employer. There is no statutory entitlement to time off for bank holidays, but employers may include bank holidays as part of a worker’s leave entitlement.
“The government cannot interfere in existing contractual arrangements between employers and workers. However, we would expect that many workers will be able to take the day off on the bank holiday."
The Queen's funeral will take place at Westminster Abbey on Monday 19 September at 11am, followed by a committal service at St. George's Chapel, Windsor Castle.
Her Majesty will be laid to rest in the King George VI Memorial Chapel at Windsor Castle, and Prince Philip will be moved from the Royal Vault so he can be laid to rest with his wife.
A national one-minute silence will also be held in honour of the Queen at 8.00pm on Sunday, 18 September, the evening before the funeral.
The one-minute silence will take place while the Queen's coffin lies in state at Westminster Hall in London.
