In the run up to Christmas Marks and Spencer previously announced it was extending opening times.
Many Simply Food and larger stores across the UK will now open until midnight on December 21, 22 and 23, giving shoppers more time to pick up their festive essentials amidst stricter social distancing rules in place across the country.
Sacha Berendji, M&S’s Retail, operations and property director said: “We want our customers to be able to shop with confidence this Christmas, which means supporting social distancing in our stores and minimal queueing outside as the weather gets colder.
“To help with this, we’ll be operating our longest ever opening hours just before Christmas.
“Along with the wider industry, we continue to ask for Sunday trading hours to be extended to help us increase our capacity to serve everyone safely this festive season.”
