Asda to close stores to allow staff to observe funeral of Queen Elizabeth II

As a mark of respect for Her Majesty The Queen, all Asda stores will be closed on Monday 19 September until 5pm.

The move has been made to allow our customers and colleagues to recognise the passing of our late Monarch and commemorate her steadfast service to our nation.

The supermarket chain will also not be offering online deliveries on Monday 19 September.

All the stores will close by midnight on Sunday, 18 September and reopen at 5pm on Monday, 19 September.

Those colleagues contracted to work while the stores are closed will receive their normal pay. Any colleagues who work when the stores reopen will be paid double time for the rest of the day.

Asda joins John Lewis, Waitrose, Asda, and a host of other businesses, in closing on Monday until 5pm to mark the proceedings.
