Tesco moves to shorten opening hours at Formby Superstore
Photography by Patrick Trollope.

ALMOST a quarter of Tesco stores are to shorten opening hours. Tesco have recently reported huge losses and this move comes as part of a bid to save costs. In total, 76 of its biggest stores will be affected in what the shopping giant says is a:- "lack of shoppers over night."

The 24 hour trading, and other practices, used by Tesco and other supermarket chains have been seen as one of the major reasons Town and City Centers have seen a major fall in independent shops. Some in the industry are now asking: is Tesco is now paying the price of its campaign to knock out the smaller competition on the High Street, by missing the rise of the online market? This question was highlighted as Tesco's Retail Director, Tony Hoggett, who he told the media:- "With the growth of online grocery shopping, these stores saw very few customers during the night." Now many businesses will be watching to see what happens next.

1 of the stores that will cease 24 hour trading is on the outskirts of Formby, Merseyside, on the A565.

We are told that these changes will take effect nationwide, between 14 March 2016 and 11 April 2016, at 76 stores. As yet we do not know if any jobs will be lost at Tesco's Formby, due to this re-thinking of Tesco's retail operations.
