Tesco to stop 24 hour opening

Post by newcomer » Fri 29 Jan, 2016 4:18 pm

Hertford is on the list linked to by this press release so will not be open between midnight and 6am anymore from sometime in March or April.

yeah won't affect us, but i'm glad i saw the notice, as I could have seen the odd random time (nappies, calpol etc) popping down there and finding it shut having not known would have been annoying :)

there's always hatfield/brookfield!

On the few occasions I have been in Tesco past midnight the only tills open are the self scanning ones.

Amazed to see ours is a "Superstore"

I've always considered it the smallest Tesco (apart from an Express) that I've ever come across.

I expect Villiers street residents will be pleased

I thought it would be one of the ones to go. I do use it at unsociable hours but have never used it between midnight at 6am so it will still suit me.

I suspect it may be to with the occasional gathering of youths at that time with hot hatches.

To be fair, when I went shopping I didn't have issues with the youths and they seem to have purchased some drinks from tesco too.

I don't know how often it happens as I rarely shop at those hours but just noticed it the few times I have been.

All regular Tesco stores are Superstores, the biguns are Extra's, the littluns are Expresses and the urban big city ones are Metro's
