Basically I accepted a job, thinking along the lines of that if I deferred it, I might lose it if I don't get the other job. However I just got a call being offered the other job, but I've already done a few hours induction training and am supposed to start on Sunday.
Both jobs are with the same company, but different stores. The other store is closer to my home and would provide me with more hours.
Am I allowed to turn down the first job now? Or do I have to give some kind of notice period?
I don't want to lose out on the other job just because I was silly to not ask for time to consider!

Check if the company has a head office HR department you could contact (check any info the store has already given you or failing that on their website). Explain you applied to both stores and ask if you could take the closer store. If you can't find anything then you'll have to ring one of the stores and explain & ask.
Your notice period would only come into it if they were different companies.
