‘Tesco will be open by end of 2013’

TESCO have revealed that their new Worksop store should be complete and open by the end of next year.

Last month, the Guardian reported that despite concerns raised by readers that building work on the new Tesco store near Carlton Road and Blyth Road had ground to a halt, the supermarket chain said that everything was in hand and under control.

Now, the Guardian have contacted Tesco once again - who say that the new 8,121 sq m store on the former Clinton Maltings site is still ‘on schedule’ and should be open by the end of next year.

A Tesco spokesman said: “We are pleased to confirm that we have completed preparation of the site.”

“We are on schedule with this development and look forward to opening a store towards the end of 2013.”

He added: “This is an exciting opportunity for us and we hope that customers will enjoy the choice, quality and value that Tesco offers.”
