// Lidl stores to open an hour later in England on Monday July 12 – if England wins the Euro Cup grand final
// Aim is to allow staff an additional hour to relax in the morning if England brings it home
Lidl has announced that it will open an hour later on Monday, should England end up winning the grand final of the Euro Cup football tournament the day before.
The British division of the German discount grocer confirmed that it would change the opening hours of its stores across England on July 12 to allow staff – and shoppers – an additional hour to kick back and relax in the morning if England bring it home on the Sunday evening prior.

The UEFA European Football Championship grand final between England and Denmark will take place at Wembley Stadium on Sunday.
Lidl said the change in opening hours will apply the next day on the Monday only, and only if England wins.
“Sunday’s final marks a huge occasion in history so, if England are victorious, we have decided to delay our stores opening by one hour,” Lidl GB chief executive Christian Härtnagel said.
“At Lidl, the reason for our success is our people and our team work, which is why we want our teams to be able to celebrate for a little longer if the England team bring it home.”
