Tesco Follows Night Tube Launch With 24-Hour Stores
A number of Tesco stores across London will open 24 hours in line with the new Night Tube schedule in a bid to increase convenience for late night and early morning travellers.
From this weekend Tesco will trial opening seven additional stores for 24 hours on Friday and Saturdays along the Victoria and Central lines.
Speaking on the business decision, 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.
He continued: “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 these extended hours, Tesco set up hydration stations at the front of stores from 3am-7am on August 19 and August 20.
Colleagues at the stores handed out Tesco's Finest freshly squeezed orange juice and cold bottled water.
