Supermarkets Aldi and Lidl state they will close shops early Sunday if England get across the World Cup last – due to the fact that “football’s getting home”.
The chains have actually guaranteed all personnel in shops in England they can go house at 15:00 BST on Sunday 15 July so they can see the match.
Now some are asking whether other grocery stores will do the same.
England play Croatia in the semi-final in Moscow on Wednesday.
Embracing the football fever, Aldi tweeted: “We’re quite sure it’s coming home?
“We desire our associates to be the 12th male cheering on the lads.”
The grocery store stated it typically closes at 16:00 on Sundays, which is when England will (ideally) be beginning.
