THIS is the reason why Tesco petrol stations in Flintshire are reducing their opening hours.

Two Tesco branches in the county slashed cut their overnight hours due to staffing issues.

Instead of being in operation for 24 hours every day, new opening hours for the fuelling stations in Mold and Broughton have been brought into effect, but this will be a ‘temporary measure’.

A Tesco spokesperson said: “Our Broughton Chester Extra and Mold Superstore petrol stations are closed for a few hours overnight as we have had difficulty finding colleagues to cover these shifts and need to prioritise serving customers who use these services during these peak times.

“We are sorry for any inconvenience caused.”

The opening times for the petrol stations are as follows:

Broughton Chester Extra:

• Monday to Saturday – from 6am to 10pm

• Sunday – from 7am to 9pm

Mold Superstore:

• Monday to Wednesday – from 6am to 10pm

• Thursday to Saturday - 24 hours

• Sunday – from 7am to 9pm
