A CHESTER supermarket will undergo a major £500,000 revamp in a bid to transform the building to make it more appealing to shoppers.
Bosses at the Tesco foodstore on Sealand Road have revealed plans for the new look store which will be completely re-decorated along with a new food to go area, new lighting, signage and a complete overhaul of the surrounding landscape.
The work is expected to be completed by the end of the year but bosses say there will be no new jobs created and the work is being carried out in line with the companies national plans to improve stores nationwide.
The store will undoubtedly face competition from shoppers following the completion of the new Asda supermarket which is currently in the process of being built closeby on the city’s Greyhound Retail Park.
Meanwhile Tesco bosses say they are excited by their refurbishment plans which will be undertaken without the store closing. They say shoppers will face little disruption and at the end of the work can look forward to a more attractive store to shop in.
Regional press officer for Tesco, Mark Thomas, said: “It is an exciting time for the store. The business is investing in a huge way across the county in a bid to refresh stores and to make them more attractive shopping destination as part of national plans.”
Meanwhile Tesco Sealand Road store manager Mark Lindley added: “We are all really excited about the relaunch of the store and can’t wait to show customers all of the exciting changes we are making for them. We have been serving customers at Tesco, Sealand Road since 2008 and these changes will ensure that we continue to that in the best way possible.”
