Tesco names 43 UK shops to close

Troubled supermarket giant Tesco has confirmed the locations of 43 of its stores across the UK which will close this spring, which include seven superstores stocking the F&F fashion brand.

The move will see 2,000 members of staff made redundant.

In total, 18 Express shops, 12 Metro stores, seven superstores and six Homeplus Tesco stores are shutting their doors.

Superstore closures include Kirkcaldy, Doncaster and Chatham.

The Express and Home Plus stores will close on March 15, while the Tesco Metro shops and Superstores will close on April 4.

Plans to expand Tesco’s store portfolio with 49 new developments have also been shelved as part of new chief executive Dave Lewis’ cost-cutting measures. The cuts will deliver savings of £250m per year with a one-off cost of £300m.

Lewis said: “The decision to close the stores has been exceptionally difficult to take. I recognise it will affect many hard working colleagues, our customers and local communities. Our priority is to explain what this announcement means for our colleagues and wherever possible, offer them alternative roles with Tesco. We will continue to serve our customers through other local stores and our dotcom service.”
