Is it tonight or saturday nights?
I know Tesco and Sainsburys shut at 10pm on Saturday.
There is a distinct paradox with your question.
its 10pm saturday iirc.
Also another question, does anyone know if the 24hr Asda's have 24hr booze licences?
excellent I can go in a few hours then
Yeah i used to do my shopping in manchester at around 3 on a saturday morning (If i hadnt been out on the beer) as it was so much less hassle.
Never did work out why 7-11 had locks on their doors when they never actually closed
The one near here shuts at 11pm on a saturday, opens and shuts on sunday and then opens for 24hr on monday...
I used to get this all the time when I worked at a 24 hour Tesco. Yes it is open 24 hours, but this actually doesn't mean much. 24 hours when? there are 168 hours in a week, so what 24 hours are we talking about? Actually it was closed from 22:00 on a sat to 8:00 on a monday. so that's 34 hours less per week = 134 hours, so it can still be open '24 hours' and still be closed.
Wow who'd have thunk it.
do they not close for xmas?(never seen a 7-11 before except one in Hong Kong)
I was actually joking. I should have perhaps embellished my comment with a , or . Oh well
Nope, they serve only up until midnight.
The 24hr Tescos do, however. I thought it was midnight, but the store in Hucknall, I was WELL out of my way - there is an Asda about 100metres away(NG2 7xx) were selling bottles of smirnoff to a couple at... 1.30am! They double checked with the manager and he said 24hour booze licence. Madness.
Ah, not sure then but the ASDA in Wolverhampton, come midnight they block the isles off with boxes and stock and what not so you can't get in them unless you climb over.
I guess each one has a different license then as I imagine they have to pay for it and only pay for the ones where they can sell enpugh at those times to make it worth while?
Oh no, sorry. The ASDA up the road stop at 12 too. Tescos this was bud, but I'm not sure how they wangled that one !!
the licence for 24hour stores and selling drinks is different per store. It depends on alot of factors. for instance a store in a "bad place" for drinking will probably not get a licence for 24hr drinking.
However My store has a 24 licence but doesnt infact open 24/7 lol
Only somthing like 1000 stores applied for a 24 hour licence, seeing as WW3 has not started since the OMFG WTG 24 HOUR pubs EEEK.
It was watered down by the fact most compaines coudlnt be arsed paying the wages for 24 hours a day.
Id check with your local store for beerage in the near future or just stock up on deals at the many shops around towns.
Ever heard of a website you tool.
Now then now then, Calm down.
What time do the start serveing *** alcohol on saturday then?
