Boxing Day: Morrisons and Sainsbury's to open despite union pressure

Morrisons is joining Sainsbury's in opening its shops on Boxing Day despite calls to give staff the day off. As part of a thank you to staff for their work during the pandemic, Asda said that all of its 631 shops would close for two days over the Christmas break. Usdaw, the union which represents shop workers, has also been calling on all retailers to close their doors on Boxing Day. A Morrisons spokeswoman said it would open its stores for a limited number of hours on Boxing Day but it was "Working hard to ensure all colleagues get a meaningful break during the Christmas period". Poundland said earlier in the year that it would stay closed on Boxing Day and New Year's Day, while retailers including Wickes, Pets and Home and the Entertainer have also said they will be closed.
