Tesco has announced plans to open up to 15 new Jack’s discount stores across the UK within the next six months and it it currently recruiting for the next five stores. The first two stores will open tomorrow (20 September) in Chatteris, Cambridgeshire and Immingham, Lincolnshire.
The retailer says the current sites “make use of excess Tesco space” and “the stores to follow will include a mix of entirely new sites, sites adjacent to existing Tesco stores, and a small number of converted Tesco stores.”
