MORRISONS in Leigh and Tyldesley will now be open longer after both stores extended their opening hours.

The Leigh store will still open at 8am but will close at 11pm instead of 10pm and the petrol station will open at 7am and close at 11pm instead of 10.30pm due to demand from shoppers.

In Tyldesley, the store will open at 8am but close at 10pm instead of 9pm.

Leigh store general manager Doug McCallum said: “Modern family life, more flexible working hours and busy schedules mean customers want us to be open for longer.

"The extension of our opening hours is one of many changes we are making – to make shopping trips easier at our stores.”
