Are shops closing due to snow and severe weather?

SNOW has hit in most parts of the country today, causing chaos across all sectors.

Delivery services, motorways, public transport and airports have all come to a grinding halt.

We’ve rounded up the full list of shops which have confirmed if they are closing due to the snow today

While most schools in areas hit by thick white blankets of snow have also had to close.

One of the biggest worries when the snow hits is whether we’ll be able to get to the shops or if they’re even open.

Particularly if your supermarket delivery slot gets cancelled or the roads are too dangerous to drive on and you embark on a hike to get there.
