    Default at/during the weekend

    1. They usually go shopping during the weekend.
    2. They usually go shopping at weekends.
    3. I never work at the weekend.
    4. I never work at weekends.

    Is there any difference in the above sentences?


    Thanks.

    I would not use #1, either. Purely my personal thought. I go shopping at the weekend; I never work at the weekend.
