Supermarkets are closing longer during the festive season to give their employees some much-needed time off, which means customers will need to plan their purchases carefully.

Hours of operation vary from branch to branch, so use this list only as a guide and check your local store’s hours before heading out.

We’ve put together a list of store opening and closing times for this festive season.

Tesco

Shops are closed on Christmas Day and Boxing Day and will be open 24 hours a day on December 23 and Christmas Eve (24).

Shops will be open on Christmas Eve (December 24), from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m., but will be closed on Christmas Day and Boxing Day (25-26).
