Iceland to close early for the Euro 2022 final - how will this affect your weekend shop in Liverpool?

Stores across England to close early as the Lionesses roar in the Euro 2022 final.

As the England Women’s Football team prepare themselves for their Euro 2022 final clash this weekend against Germany, Iceland have taken steps to allow their employees to enjoy the final in its entirety.

After a rousing victory in the semi finals against Sweden, the Lionesses are set to face Die Nationalelf for a chance to win the Euros trophy in front of a white-hot Wembley crowd, with Liverpudlians Alex Greenwood and Nikita Parris part of the squad.

To gather as much support for the Lionesses as possible, Iceland and The Food Warehouse will be closing early and stopping deliveries to allow their workers a chance to watch the final live.

What time will Iceland and The Food Warehouse close on Sunday?

A statement released by the supermarket chain announced that all Iceland and The Food Warehouse stores across the country will close on Sunday 31 July at 4:00pm.

Online deliveries on Sunday will also finish at 5pm.

Richard Walker, Managing Director at Iceland, said: “We’re immensely proud of our lionesses and how far they have come to make it to the final on Sunday.

“Sporting achievements like this don’t happen very often so we think it’s only right to give our store teams the opportunity to watch this historic moment.”
