Supermarket chain Tesco is going even further to support the nation by introducing a ‘browsing hour’ before checkouts open for NHS workers.

From Mother’s Day, and every following Sunday, Tesco stores - except Express stores - will be offering this new initiative.

Tesco has already brought in a shopping hour from 9am to 10am on Monday, Wednesday and Friday for older/vulnerable people.
