All the shops staying closed this Boxing Day – including Aldi, Poundland and more | #whatsapp | #lovescams | #phonescams

While Christmas is still more than a month away, a number of supermarkets and retailers have given shoppers warning well in advance that they will be closed on Boxing Day. Most businesses across the country are closed on Christmas Day (December 25), but reopen the following day as massive sales take place.

However, a number of retailers have confirmed that they will remain closed this year, to give staff the time to spend with family and friends after a hectic festive period.

Here, Chronicle Live breaks down some of the shops which will be shut on Boxing Day this year, so shoppers can avoid disappointment by turning up to a closed store.

Aldi –

Aldi has confirmed that all stores will remain closed on Boxing Day as per usual, in a bid to thank colleagues for their hard work over the busy Christmas period. It will however, open up once again on December 27 for families to pick up New Year essentials.

Richard Thornton, Communications Director at Aldi UK, said: “We recognise that Christmas is an important time for many of our colleagues, and keeping our stores closed on Boxing Day gives them more time to spend with their families. Customers will have plenty to look forward to in the run-up to Christmas, with more of Aldi’s brand-new Christmas ranges arriving in stores over the next few weeks.”

Iceland –

Iceland will also remain closed on Boxing Day this year, with the chain confirming that all 1,000 stores (including Food Warehouses) will not be open to the general public so staff can spend time with their nearest and dearest. The supermarket did the same last year, with Richard Walker, Managing Director, saying: “We’ll be closing all our Iceland and Food Warehouse stores on Boxing Day, to give our colleagues a well-earned rest with their friends & families.”
