Tesco changes Sunday opening hours as 1,800 stores affected by England Euro 2024 final

Tesco is closing stores early on Sunday, July 14 to let staff watch the Euro 2024 final between England and Spain.

Gareth Southgate’s boys have done the unthinkable and made it to their second Euros final in a row, having seen off the Netherlands with a wonder strike from Ollie Watkins following a controversial penalty despatched by Harry Kane.

And now Tesco has announced it is making a change to its opening hours this Sunday.

Tesco Express stores in England will close at 7.30pm instead of the usual 10pm or 11pm closing times.

Due to Sunday trading laws, larger Tesco supermarkets have to close by 4pm anyway, so the move only affects the small corner shop Tesco Express convenience stores.

Tesco said more than 1,800 of its Express shops will shut at 7.30pm, allowing all of its employees to watch the final.

Tesco stores in Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland will be open as normal.

Any online orders already placed for Sunday evening will be honoured and delivered as usual but no further orders will be accepted.

Other supermarkets such as Asda, Morrisons and Sainsbury’s are yet to make an announcement about their hours this Sunday.

It comes as retailers on Thursday morning faced chaos over card payments failing and being rejected, forcing shoppers to use cash to pay.
