Dunnes Stores says it is opening all its stores from 1-7pm today.

Tesco Ireland has said it is restarting its home deliveries today but obviously that is going to be dependent on the backlog and of accessibility to customers’ homes. Its stores opened for the most part at 9am today, except for those in Dublin, Kildare, Wicklow, Wexford and Meath, which are due to open at 11am.

Aldi Ireland said yesterday that it hoped to open all of its supermarkets by 9am today. However, some social media users have noted that not all stores are open and are being affected by local conditions so it would be advisable to check with your nearest Aldi before traveling.


Lidl Ireland is recovering from an incident in its closed Citywest shop yesterday evening which will see eight people in court this morning.

It is opening on restricted hours in Leinster, Munster, and Galway.

Convenience retailing group BWG Foods, which includes stores such as Spar, Londis, Mace and XL, have said that the “vast majority” of its stores will be open today.

Decisions on whether these stores open is made by the local shop owners and some of these, in fact, remained open yesterday.

“The vast majority of our 1,040 community-based Spar, Eurospar, Londis, Mace and XL stores will be open for business over the weekend and beyond,” the company said in a statement.
