Tesco to open over 300 stores for 24 hours in run-up to Christmas

Tesco has saved £200m per year through energy efficiency

Grocery giant Tesco is set to open over 300 of its stores for 24 hours, with the remainder extending opening hours, from the middle of December until Christmas.

Retail Week understands that Tesco is set to open more than 300 of its largest-format stores for 24 hours a day from December 14 to Christmas Eve.

The remainder of the grocer’s store estate will operate extended trading hours between those dates, opening stores from 5am until 11pm. 

Tesco previously operated a number of both Superstore and Extra format stores around the clock, but has been reducing opening hours across its estate since 2016.
