The Tesco Extra store in Royston will no longer be open 24 hours, as the supermarket giant makes cutbacks.

Royston is one of 76 stores that will now be closed between midnight and 6am, and the changes will come into effect between Monday, March 14, and Monday, April 11.

Retail director Tony Hoggett 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.”
