PLANS have been submitted to Pendle Council to vary the condition regulating the opening hours of Morrisons supermarket in Nelson.

At the moment, the Pendle Street store is open from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. on Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Saturdays and from 8 a.m. to 9 p.m. on Thursdays and Fridays.

The application is to extend the opening hours on the days the store closes earlier by an hour to 9 p.m.

A spokesman for Morrisons said: “The reason for this is that many of our customers are working uneven hours and looking to buy their groceries later in the evening.”
