UNDER THREAT: Tesco Superstore in Carlton

Tesco has today announced that it is to end 24-hour trading at its Carlton store.

The company blames the growth in online shopping for the decision and says that fewer stores now have customers at night.

The store will now be closed between midnight and 6am and job losses are expected because of the move.

The supermarket giant today published a list of the 76 stores, which included Carlton, affected by the decision. They will all be closing at midnight from March.

It is not yet known if jobs will be affected by the decision.

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

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