Tesco has announced its superstore in Bexhill will stop opening for 24 hours a day from this spring.

The store at the Ravenside Retail Park will close between midnight and 6am it was announced today (Friday, January 29).

As reported earlier, a spokesman for the company said the changes would be implemented at 76 stores across the country between March 14 and April 11.

Tony Hoggett, Retail Director for Tesco said: “We’re always thinking about how to serve our customers better in each of our stores and with the growth of online grocery shopping, these stores saw very few customers during the night.

“It makes much more sense for colleagues at those stores to focus on replenishing the shelves instead and making sure they’re fully stocked when they open their doors at 6am.

“We’ll continue to make changes in store in ways that will make shopping at Tesco a better experience for our customers, at the times they want to shop.”

There will be no other change to the night operation and the spokesman said the ‘impact to colleagues is expected to be minimal’.
