Lidl has said it is to close its stores in Leinster and Munster from 3pm tomorrow (Thursday) until 1pm on Friday, March 2.
The decision has been made due to the weather, in the interest of customer and staff safety.
"Upon re-opening, we ask customers for patience with our store teams who will have just resumed normal operations," says a statement.
"We are continuing to assess and monitor the situation as it happens. As always the health and safety of all colleagues and customers remains an absolute priority.
"Decisions may be taken at individual store level to extend this closure period depending on localised weather conditions."
