Discount stores

Where are the Jack’s discount stores that will close amid Tesco cuts?

The company said it would close counters in stores with the “lowest demand” amid changes in customer habits.

It added that it will close seven of its 13 Jack’s discount stores, which will affect 130 jobs at the sites and its head office.

The remaining six outlets will become Tesco stores.

Tesco has announced it will close meat, fish and delicatessen counters in 317 of its stores and close its discount supermarket branch Jack’s.

Jason Tarry, Managing Director of Tesco UK & Republic of Ireland, said: “Our Jack’s brand will continue to be sold through Booker and our iconic brands, bringing great value and quality to even more customers.

“We would like to thank our colleagues at Jack for all they have done and taught us.

“Our priority is to find roles within our wider business for any colleagues who want to stay with us.”

The Jack’s brand was launched by former chief executive Dave Lewis in 2018 to cope with the meteoric growth of German discount rivals Aldi and Lidl.
