Lulu Supermarkets has revised its opening hours amid the ongoing sterilisation programme in the UAE.

Officials in the country have announced an extension of the disinfection programme until Sunday 5 April, during which time people must stay at home from 8pm to 6am each day. In line with that, Lulu has revised its opening hours, to close at 7pm each day.

“In view of the UAE Sterilisation Programme, Lulu stores across UAE have revised its operating hours from 8am to 7pm from today,” the company said in a statement. “Please plan shopping accordingly and avoid last-moment rush so as to maintain social distancing procedures.”
