The decision by Salling Group comes after it has been banned from selling alcohol at 10 p.m.
From Monday, all Føtex and Netto stores close at 10 pm.
This is confirmed by Salling Group to TV 2.
At the same time, the areas where alcohol is sold are closed off in the Bilka stores that have opened until 11 pm.
This happens after the government stated at a press conference on Friday night that from Monday it will be forbidden to sell alcohol after 10 pm in the retail trade as supermarkets and kiosks.
