Sainsbury's issues 'convenience store and petrol station' warning to shoppers

Sainsbury's will be closing its convenience stores and petrol filling stations early across England this Sunday. Over 1,000 Sinabury's Local stores will be closing earlier at 7:30pm instead of their usual time of between 10pm or 11pm.

Like Tesco, all these stores will be opening at their normal time on Sunday morning. Sainsbury's larger supermarket stores will not be affected as they usually close ahead of the 8pm kick-off between England and Spain in the Euro 2024 final.

Any groceries online orders which have already been booked for after this time will be honoured. All branches will reopen at their usual time on Monday, the retailer - which is rivalled by the likes of Tesco, Lidl, Asda, Morrisons and Aldi - also said.

England manager Gareth Southgate brought on Cole Palmer and Ollie Watkins with nine minutes remaining on Wednesday night, as the Three Lions overcame the Netherlands in Dortmund 2-1 to book their spot in the final in Berlin on Sunday night.

Then in the final minute or normal time, Palmer played the ball in to Aston Villa striker Watkins, who turned and fired just inside the far post to spark jubilation among the England players, staff and fans. "The fact that Ollie comes on and produces the moment he does from Cole's pass, it epitomises what they've got," said Southgate.

"Their dedication to each other, the way they've grown and moulded as a group, it's been absolutely fantastic. All of the players have been ready to come in to the games and it's brilliant for them that so many have had these moments that have been so important for the team."

Netherlands forward Cody Gakpo, meanwhile, said: "I think second half we played better and in the last 10 minutes of the game we were more dominant. [It is a] tough one to take, a tough game. When you get the penalty and it goes in you get more confidence.

"That was a decisive moment as well. It is what it is. It is a part of football and unfortunately we are the ones that lost today."
