A number of Tesco stores across London will open 24hrs in line with the new Night Tube schedule in a bid to increase convenience for late night and early morning travellers. From Friday 19 August Tesco will trial opening seven additional stores for 24hrs 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 these extended hours, Tesco will set up 'Hydration Stations' at the front of stores running from 3am-7am on 19 and 20 August.
Colleagues at the stores will be handing out Tesco's Finest* freshly squeezed orange juice and cold bottled water, rewarding night workers benefiting from the new 24hr service and helping refresh party goers heading home after a night out.
