Tesco has confirmed it is closing the first-ever discount Jack\u2019s store, only around a year after it unveiled its new concept. \r\n\r\nThe store in Rawtenstall, East Lancashire, was the first ever discount store that the \u2018Big Four Grocer\u2019 opened as it looked to rival the German discount supermarkets Aldi and Lidl. It will now be replaced by a 40,000sq ft Tesco store following customer feedback.\u00a0\r\n\r\nJason Tarry, Tesco UK CEO, said: \u201cWe are really pleased to be bringing Tesco back to Rawtenstall in time for Christmas. We have listened to customer feedback and look forward to serving customers in the refreshed store.\u201d\r\n\r\nThe store is set to formally transfer over on the 20 October with the new Tesco store opening on 21 November. Tesco added that all employees of the Jack\u2019s store will be transferred with new opportunities also available.
