Asda, Aldi, Tesco, Morrisons and Lidl announce new rules and opening times


Supermarket chains have revealed new rules and opening times for shoppers across the country. All supermarkets reduced their opening hours when the Coronavirus lock-down was introduced last month.

Asda which used to open 24 hours, started closing at 8pm. Stores will now be open Monday – Saturday 8am – 10pm. Normal Sunday trading hours will remain the same.

Aldi opening hours have now been extended until 10pm at almost all stores.

Tesco has introduced a one-way system for customers.

Morrisons has changed its opening hours. All stores will now be open from 7am to 8pm Monday to Saturday. On Sundays, the majority of stores will open at 9am for NHS workers to shop. They will open at 9.30am for all other customers to shop normally.

Lidl has also lifted restrictions, and told customers when the best times are to shop at their stores. 8am to 11am is the busiest time, 11am until 2pm is average, and from 2pm until closing time is the quietest part of the day. The chain added that this will vary between stores.
