What are Tesco's opening hours?
Tesco has more than 3,400 stores across the UK and you can find your nearest – including store opening times – using the supermarket's store locator tool.
The supermarket has implemented special opening times for the elderly, vulnerable and healthcare workers along with early closures to help restock shelves.
A spokesman for the store said it has temporarily stopped its 24 hour opening times to help with restocking.
Many stores are opening at 6am or 7am in the morning and closing at 10pm.
A statement from Tesco also said it was closing its deli counters and cafes for the foreseeable future to help in other parts of the stores.
What about for NHS workers?
NHS workers have special slots reserved at the superstore on Tuesday, Thursday and Sunday between 9am and 10am.
Sunday is just a browsing hour before the checkouts open at 10am.
Any healthcare worker wishing to shop in these special slots will need to show a form of ID, such as their NHS staff card.
There is also a slot reserved for elderly and vulnerable workers on Monday, Wednesday and Friday from 9am-10am.
When is the best time to shop there?
Google has a tracker that allows you to see when the peak times are.
If you search for “Tesco” and then click on your nearest store, it will show a bar chart of when the store’s busiest times are.
What should I buy when I’m there?
The Government and supermarkets have urged shoppers not to panic buy or stockpile and have repeatedly said there is “enough food for everyone”.
We have compiled a list of what you need for two weeks now that Boris Johnson has told Brits to shop as infrequently as possible.
Is there a limit on items?
Yes. Tesco has said it has placed a three item limit per customer on each product line and has temporarily removed its multi-buy promotions.
Asda also announced it was following Tesco's lead and changing the opening times for its 24 hour stores so it can restock overnight.

Can I order online?
Tesco's online service is open as normal and anyone is currently able to create an account.
However, shoppers have discovered that Tesco has sold out of delivery slots amid the coronavirus outbreak.
There are alternative food delivery options including Eversfield Organic, Mindful Chef, AmazonFresh, Abel & Cole and Hello Fresh.
Supermarkets have asked for customers to tell them if they are self isolating to reduce the risk of the infection spreading.
