I’ve just noticed that back in August Sainsbury’s submitted a planning application for new Sunday opening times.
The company who run their Sainsbury’s Local store in Hoylake on Market Street, have applied for permission to have opening times of 8am-10pm Monday-Sunday.
Even though the store has permission to open on a Sunday from 10am until 6pm it currently opens at 12pm. I do not know why they open the store on Sunday at 12pm when they could open at 10am?
In their supporting documentation Sainsbury’s state that the Co-op store also on Market Street already has permission to trade between the hours of 8am-10pm on a Sunday.
You can read the full planning application here – a decision is still pending.
