Lidl has announced the changes to be made in English stores on Monday 12th July. Lidl stores will be opening an hour later in England on Monday 12th July, following the Euros final.
However, the change will only be made if England is victorious in the historic finals.
It is the first time since 1966 England has made it to the finals.
The change is being made to offer Lidl staff extra time after an evening of Sunday celebrations.
However, no such change will be made to take into account commiserations.

The supermarket claims it is making the change to “allow staff an additional hour to kick back and relax in the morning if England bring it home on Sunday evening.”
Hours will be as usual despite the one hour later start.
Opening hours will return to normal from Tuesday 13th July.
Christian Härtnagel, CEO at Lidl GB, comments: “Sunday’s final marks a huge occasion in history so, if England are victorious, we have decided to delay our stores opening by one hour.

“At Lidl, the reason for our success is our people and our teamwork, which is why we want our teams to be able to celebrate for a little longer if the England team bring it home.”
Co-op has also made changes in certain branches.
Branches of Co-op belonging to the Southern Co-op group will be closing at 7.45pm on Sunday.
This is instead of the usual time of 10pm or 11pm.
This will allow employees to watch the match.
The next day stores will open at usual times.
Co-op has put up posters which read: “We will be closing at 7.45pm on Sunday 11 July.
“The lads have done us proud and so have our colleagues, so we’re sending everyone home early to celebrate. Thank you for your understanding.”
Boris Johnson has also updated pub closing times across the UK due to the match.
Pubs in England can stay open until 11.15pm on Sunday.
This will allow fans to celebrate a little after the match.
A Government source said: “As the entire nation comes together to enjoy the Euros final on Sunday, we’re putting extra time on licenses so fans can watch the whole game without fear of being kicked out before it’s over.”
They told The Sun: “We’re backing England to make it there.”
