These are the 43 Tesco stores closing this year

Over 2,000 jobs are at risk as beleaguered supermarket Tesco has released a list of 43 stores it plans to close.

The store closures are part of Tesco’s plan to overcome problems including overstating profits by £263m.

Tesco chief executive Dave Lewis said: “The decision to close the stores has been exceptionally difficult to take. I recognise it will affect many hard-working colleagues, our customers and local communities.

“Our priority is to explain what this announcement means for our colleagues and, wherever possible, offer them alternative roles with Tesco.”

Out of the stores marked for closure, the Tesco Metros are set to close by 4 April and the Express and Home Plus stores will close by 15 March.

In a statement, Pauline Foulkes, spokesperson, Union of Shop, Distributive and Allied Workers, said: “Our priority is to maximise employment within Tesco, seek redeployment opportunities for members, where possible, and to keep job losses to a minimum.”
