Tesco to reduce opening hours at 76 UK stores

- Leadership - Feb 01, 2016

Tesco has announced it will be cutting down the number of its stores that are open 24 hours a day. The 76 stores will now open from 6am to midnight. The supermarket currently has 400 stores open 24 hours a day.

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.”
