All the major supermarkets will operate a little differently over the Christmas break - so we have collected the opening hours for Asda, Aldi, Sainsburys, Lidl, Tesco, Co-op and Morrisons, M&S and Waitrose to save you the trouble

When you realise you have forgotten that key ingredient for the Christmas Day dinner or when you wake up on Boxing Day to notice you have run out of coffee, it’s essential to know which supermarkets are open to save you from frantically running round Manchester looking for a retailer welcoming customers.

While some supermarkets around the city are closed during Christmas Day, others are opting for shorter hours or quieter shopping for everyone looking for their last minute purchases.
