New Year’s Day is here and if you’ve run out of food and drink already you might be in a need of a trip to the supermarket.

But the shops will be open for slightly shorter hours than usual, so we’ve rounded up the opening times below.

Some supermarkets and shops have even decided to stay closed altogether to thank staff for their hard work and give them extra time to be with family as the festive season draws to a close.

Below we’ve rounded up the opening and closing times for New Year’s Day, so check before you head out to avoid disappointment.

It’s worth remembering that Monday, January 3 is a bank holiday so shorter opening times will apply in some stores, and we’ve listed these below where available.
