XMAS BREAK: Sainsbury's to remain closed on Boxing Day

Monday 13th September 2021

SAINSBURY’S will close stores on Boxing Day to give its staff a break over the Christmas period.

The supermarket said all of its stores and petrol stations will remain shut on December 26.

The move follows similar statements by Morrisons, Aldi, M&S and Waitrose who will also shut for a two-day festive break this year.

Simon Roberts, chief executive of Sainsbury’s, said: “Christmas is a really special time for so many, but because of lockdown restrictions last year, lots of us weren’t able to celebrate in the way we wanted.

“In recognition of this and to say a massive thank you to all our colleagues for everything they have done during the last challenging year, we will be closing all of our supermarkets, convenience stores and petrol filling stations, as well as Argos and Habitat stores, this Boxing Day.”
