Tesco To Axe 24-Hour Shopping At Eight More Supermarkets


Supermarket giant Tesco yesterday announced plans to scrap 24 hour opening at eight 'Extra' stores.

Last year, the food firm vowed to deliver a wave of improvements to help simplify how its stores are operated, in a bid to improve the shopping experience for customers.

It said the shake-up - which included scrapping its Orchard loyalty scheme and axing free click and collect - has made a real difference for customers.

The food giant said it's now focusing on in-store changes.

This will include moving from night-to-day replenishment in 69 stores, with eight of those stores reducing their trading hours.

The changes - which are to be implemented over the coming months - have placed 3,000 roles under consultation.

Tesco said it's also bringing together different service desks so that customers can get everything they need in one place.

Tesco UK and ROI chief executive, Matt Davies said: "We're committed to improving the way we serve our customers and this week have discussed making further changes in a number of UK stores with our colleagues.

"These changes will help us run these stores more simply and deliver the best possible service for customers.

"We appreciate these changes will impact the roles of some of our colleagues and we will work with them to ensure they are fully supported throughout this period.” Full list of branches affected - is your local on the list?
