Here’s a breakdown of all the opening times the major supermarkets in Liverpool will be working over Christmas and New Year.

During the festive period stores operating hours differ from the usual. It’s always good to be up to date before leaving the house, so we have a breakdown of all the major supermarket’s opening hours to help you.
