Tesco follows Night Tube launch with 24hr stores
Tesco has announced that a number of its stores across London will open 24 hours in line with the new Night Tube schedule as it looks to benefit from trade from late night and early morning travellers.
From Friday 19 August Tesco will trial opening seven additional stores for 24 hours on Friday and Saturdays along the Victoria and Central lines.
Martin Smith, Tesco's London convenience director, said: "London is such a vibrant and exciting place to live, work and visit and the Night Tube provides people with a great way to experience the city at a time that suits them best.
“At Tesco we're always looking for new ways to serve London's customers whenever it is most convenient to them. That's why we're delighted to announce these new opening hours at select store, helping to make life easier for those either working late or enjoying London’s nightlife.”
To mark the launch of the extended hours, Tesco will set up ‘Hydration Stations’ at the front of stores running from 3am-7am on 19 and 20 August where store staff will hand out free Tesco’s Finest freshly squeezed orange juice and cold bottled water to customers.
