Opening Times

London, Dec 30, 2018 ( – The last day of the year, just before New Years Eve starts, the supermarkets are filled with customers trying to ensure they have all the right snacks and drinks to make their New Years Party a success. Therefore, shopping on the 31st of December can be a bit stressful especially with stores closing earlier than usual. According to research done by the majority of supermarkets will close by 6 pm. Your best bet for late-evening shopping is Tesco, Sainsburys and Co-op with an average closing time of 9 pm.

New Years Day opening times will be even more restricted. While the majority of supermarket chains will have most of their stores opened on the 1st of January, over 2000 supermarkets will be closed all day. Waitrose, Marks & Spencer, Iceland & Lidl will all have less than a quarter of their stores open on the 1st of January and all of the Aldi shops will be closed. For the supermarkets that will be open on New Years Day, the vast majority (75%) of the establishments will open by 9 am; the other 25% will be opened by 12 pm.

Waitrose will for its part close most of its large stores, the Waitrose stores that will remain open on the 1st of January being the ones located within service stations off major motorways, all Aldi establishments will be closed.

When you look at the whole of the United Kingdom, stores in Edinburgh and Glasgow will see the shortest opening times on the 1st of January while Manchester has the shortest amount of opened grocery stores both on New Years Eve and on New Years Day. Nottingham and London are on the top of the list of cities with the longest opening times over that period.
