They are two different but incomplete parts of a fuller sentence.

  1. When the shop is open ---> I will do x.
  2. When the shop is open --->I will buy some eggs.
  3. When the shop is open ---> we can get some chocolates for the children.
  4. Etc
  5. When will the shop be open --->I need to buy some x.
  6. When will the shop be open ---->I need to buy some eggs.
  7. When will the shop be open ---> We have to buy some chocolates for the children's birthday party.
  8. Etc
First sentence is used for what will happen when the shop opens.
Second sentence is usually used when you are asking a question or explaining that you need the shop to be open for a reason.

A When will the shop be open?
B It opens at 9:00 am.

Hi Timofey,

They both basically mean the same thing. But would be written as:

When is the shop open?
When will the shop be open?

Kind regards,
