Tesco calls time on 24 hour trading at 76 stores

Tesco Silverburn 725 x 500

Opening hours will be reduced at 76 stores around the country to improve the shopping experience for customers, Tesco announced today. Affected stores, which had previously been open 24 hours, will close their doors to customers between midnight and 6am.

The move to reduce hours means more Tesco colleague time will be freed up to replenish products on the shelves overnight, which will mean better availability of products and better looking stores when they open their doors to customers each morning.

Being responsive to the way customers want to shop in store means making a much more efficient use of Tesco time and resources, making savings for Tesco which can be passed on to customers.

Tony Hoggett, Retail Director for Tesco said:

“We’re always thinking about how to serve our customers better in each of our stores and with the growth of online grocery shopping, these stores saw very few customers during the night.

“It makes much more sense for colleagues at those stores to focus on replenishing the shelves instead and making sure they’re fully stocked when they open their doors at 6am.
“We’ll continue to make changes in store in ways that will make shopping at Tesco a better experience for our customers, at the times they want to shop.”

The changes will take effect between 14th March and 11th April 2016. There will be no other change to the night operation in these shops, so the impact to colleagues is expected to be minimal.
