Here's when SuperValu, Lidl, Aldi, Tesco and Dunnes will reopen
We can't be the only ones running out of supplies.
It's the third day of what's been termed an extraordinary weather event and last night saw the country go into lockdown with everyone warned to stay indoors from 4 pm.
Although parts of the country saw intense snow overnight, Kildare was hit badly, it is getting brighter in other areas.
At this stage, we're more than a little hangry and the bread jokes are wearing thin.
Thankfully, there will be some shops open today so you can replenish stocks depending on where you live.
At the time of writing, the below times are accurate but of course, this is subject to change.
Customers are urged to check with their local branch before travelling as conditions vary across the country.
We would urge consumers to contact their local store before travelling as each store will differ in their opening hours depending on the severity of the storm. The safety of our staff and customers is paramount and we apologise for any inconvenience caused.

As things stand, Lidl stores are due to open this afternoon but again, it might be wise to check with your local store before travelling as things are changing so rapidly.
On the back of extended Governent advice to stay indoors, which now applies to the whole of ROI, we will extend the previously communicated closures in Leinster & Munster to the rest of the Republic of Ireland. All stores will now be closed from 3pm today until Friday afternoon.

The same goes for Dunnes, also due to reopen tomorrow. Originally, it was thought that stores in Northern Ireland would open at 1 pm but it's now been confirmed that all Dunnes outlets will remain closed until tomorrow.
Hi there has been an update NI Dunnes Stores will reopen tomorrow Friday at 1pm but ROI Dunnes Stores remain closed. regards

Due to the adverse weather conditions, our Marks & Spencer stores in ROI will remain closed today with the exception of Letterkenny which will open at 12pm. Weather permitting, all stores will open tomorrow. We will continue to keep you updated. Stay safe everyone.
