Whether it’s grabbing a late stocking filler for a family member you’ve forgotten about or suddenly remembering that you’re run out of gravy for the turkey, you might just find yourself having to do a panic dash to the supermarket.
Many shops will have different opening hours over the festive period, while others may close altogether for a few days to give their staff a well-earned rest – but when will Tesco be open over Christmas?
We’ve got all the information you need…
What are the Tesco opening times for Christmas Eve, Christmas Day and Boxing Day?
Tesco kept hundreds of its stores open for 24 hours a day in the build-up to Christmas Day.
On Christmas Eve, hours vary across stores, with most Metro and Express stores open until 10pm, while most superstores close earlier – at 7 or 8pm, depending on where you are based.
As always, opening hours vary across branches, so check the Tesco website before heading out.
