Tesco to shut Express stores early if England make Euro 24 finals

Tesco has confirmed it will close its Express stores early on Sunday (July 14) if England reach the Euro 2024 finals.

The supermarket giant said over 1,800 of its Express stores would close at 7:30pm, instead of the usual 10pm or 11pm, allowing  all its employees to watch the potential final involving England.

With the final scheduled for Sunday, the retailer’s larger stores will already be closed before the 8pm kick-off time.

Though Tesco reassured customers that stores would operate as normal during the daytime on Sunday, allowing them to purchase any essential pre-match supplies and will reopen as usual the following morning.

All online orders already placed for Sunday evening will be honoured and delivered as usual. Stores in Wales, Scotland, and Northern Ireland will maintain their regular operating hours.

Tesco managing director of UK stores Kevin Tindall said: “We will be cheering on the Three Lions tonight against the Netherlands and hope they reach a second successive Euros final.”

“We appreciate just how much this would mean to so many of our colleagues, and we want them to be able to celebrate with their family and friends.

“So, if we make it through to the final, we will close our stores across England in time for them to get behind Gareth Southgate and the team, and we’ll all be hoping that football will be coming home.”
