New Year's Day supermarket opening times: Asda, Aldi, M&S, Tesco, Sainsbury's, Morrisons, Lidl

It's New Year's Day and that means supermarkets will be open for slight shorter than usual, with some even remaining closed for the day to give staff that extra bit of time off.

Chances are you might be in need of something for the perfect hangover cure, or you might be ready to stock up your cupboards with healthy treats after all that Christmas excess. If you're in need of a supermarket visit today, it's worth checking our guide to supermarket opening times to make sure it's not a wasted journey.

Don't forget, with New Year's Day falling on a Sunday, the bank holiday is rolled over to tomorrow, so supermarket opening times will also be shorted on Monday, January 2.
