In the title compound, C6H4Cl2OS, the acetyl group is almost coplanar with the thio­phene ring [dihedral angle = 4.01 (2)°]. In the crystal, short inter­molecular OCl contacts [2.9494 (14) and 3.1191 (14) Å] link the mol­ecules into infinite (100) sheets and aromatic - stacking [centroid-centroid separation = 3.5422 (10) Å] consolidates the packing.
