Tesco's department store proposal beaten by Waitrose

Plans for Tesco's first ever department store look set to be turned down in favour of a rival scheme fronted by Waitrose, the John Lewis-owned supermarket.

According to a report in The Daily Telegraph, The cabinet of Hammersmith and Fulham council, London will meet on Monday to decide which of three developers will get the go-ahead to regenerate Kings Street, one of Hammersmith's main shopping areas.

One of the proposals is for Tesco's first department store - a new concept selling food, clothing, electricals and sports goods over two floors.

However, documents seen by the newspaper reveal that an initial evaluation of the proposals by council officers show that they favour rival Waitrose as the anchor tenant.
