However, shopping times may vary from store to store so before doing a shop, make sure you check the Asda website first.

During the coronavirus pandemic, ASDA has reduced its opening hours from 8am to 10pm.

The shorter shopping times also apply to stores that were once open 24 hours a day.

According to the supermarket giant, this is to enable staff to have enough time to fully restock shelves.
