Re: The Tesco & Other non-Morrisons Supermarket Thread

Tesco are going to launch a 'discounter' Aldi/Lidl-like format: https://www.theguardian.com/business/2018/feb/11/tesco-planning-discount-chain-to-take-on-aldi-and-lidl There's talk that they're going to dig up an old brand for the chain; my money's on Wm Low... Bet they'll fluff it. Much like they ...

I can never quite work out whether I think the Trafford Centre is amazing or incredibly tacky. Perhaps they're not mutually exclusive.
It's amazingly tacky ;)

Is there anything lined up to go in there? BHS might be interested in the empty unit.
It's a fairly big store - about 7 or 8 units size for the centre, so I've heard it will be split between Zavvi, Woolworths, Radio Rentals and John Menzies :)

(Nothing official has been announced).

Re: The Tesco & Other non-Morrisons Supermarket Thread

So, it's all over for Tesco Metro Stretford, which has been in Stretford Mall, Manchester for more than 40 years. and which closed this evening for the final time. It was always going to go after Tesco opened an Extra a few miles away towards Old Trafford (confusingly Tesco Extra Stretford) and last...

Re: The Tesco & Other non-Morrisons Supermarket Thread

Stretford, like the stadium's Stretford End? Not really that confusing at all I'd say. Tesco Extra Trafford or Tesco Extra Old Trafford would have made more sense, given its location. And you do realise the Stretford End of Old Trafford football stadium is so named because it's the end nearest Stre...

Re: The Tesco & Other non-Morrisons Supermarket Thread

News broke today that the Tesco Metro in Stretford, Manchester will be closing in December. Not entirely surprised as a big Tesco Extra opened 4 or years ago only a couple of miles away (near Old Trafford Stadium but confusingly dubbed Tesco Extra Stretford). Also a large Aldi opened last year at th...

It's not new, its just a Bargain Booze that isn't just booze. Isn't there a "Bargain Booze Plus" as well?
Interesting that there's a Bargain Booze a couple of hundred yards away up towards the A56.
