Home Bargains issues festive closure notice that affects every UK store

Home Bargains has issued a festive closure notice that all UK retailers should stand up and take notice of.

The retail giant, which hires around 22,000 people across 500 stores, has confirmed it will be shutting on Boxing Day and New Year’s Day and at the earlier time of 5pm on Christmas Eve as a thank you for their hard work.

A spokesperson for Home Bargains told the Mirror: “We recognise how incredibly hard all of our colleagues have worked over the last year, to continue to serve the local communities that rely on them so much.

“In light of this, we felt it was only right to reward store teams by taking the decision to close all of our stores on Boxing Day and New Year’s Day, and also close stores early at 5pm on Christmas Eve.

“As a family-run business we know the importance of being together at Christmas with those we care about most, now more than ever, and this is our way of saying thank you to all of our colleagues for their continued hard work and dedication.”

The announcement comes after both Morrisons and Marks and Spencer said they will close all their shops on Boxing Day this year.

It’s a call being echoed across the UK at the moment as retail staff have been working harder than ever in the post-lockdown period and with Boxing Day usually being exceptionally busy, this will come as music to their ears.

Other supermarkets who stayed shut on December 26 last year include Aldi and Asda – but both are yet to reveal their 2021 plans.
