Tesco is jumping on the night tube bandwagon by opening an additional seven of its London stores for 24 hours this weekend.
The news from the UK’s largest supermarket retailer is a bid to increase convenience for late night and early morning travellers along the Victoria and Central lines of London’s Underground.
To mark the launch of these extended hours, the Big 4 grocer will also set up “Hydration Stations” at the front of stores running from 3am-7am on Friday and Saturday nights.
This will see Tesco staff handing out freshly-squeezed orange juice and cold bottled water, benefiting both night workers and party goers heading home after a night out.
“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,” Tesco London convenience director Martin Smith said.
“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.”
