Tesco in Bagshot?
Tesco today confirmed that they are interested in opening a small supermarket on the Jack's restaurant site on London Road in Bagshot.
The company says it wants to bring choice and competition to the village by developing a store that will focus on selling Tesco's popular ranges of food and groceries and enable Bagshot residents to do their weekly food shop locally.
Beth Greenhouse, Tesco's corporate affairs manager, says: "Our plans are for a small store offering local customers a range of quality fresh groceries and everyday essentials ideal for a weekly family shop. Our focus will be on providing a quality grocery service, rather than selling the wider ranges of non-food goods associated with our larger stores."
"We know that many people currently travel to other towns for their main weekly food shopping, so a new Tesco in the village centre will offer the convenience of shopping in Bagshot, saving both time and travel costs as well as benefiting footfall in the centre."
The new Tesco would be approximately twice the size of the Co-op in Bagshot and include a 72-space car park, with free customer parking. A new pedestrian link to Bridge Street will allow customers to shop at Tesco as well as spend time in the village, a short walk away.
The energy efficient store would create up to 80 full and part-time positions which, wherever possible, would be offered to local people as a priority.
"We believe that being so close to the centre of Bagshot will complement existing businesses, creating extra footfall that is currently lost to other towns." confirms Tesco's Beth Greenhouse.
David King, the owner of Jack's Fish and Chip restaurant had decided he would consider options for the future of his business. Tesco and David King have subsequently reached an agreement for the premises to be used for the proposed supermarket.
David King, the owner of Jack's Fish and Chip restaurant commented: "Jack's has enjoyed many years of successful business in Bagshot and we have made many friends among our loyal customers. Due to a combination of business and personal factors I have now decided that the time is right for me to move on from the fish and chip business and have agreed to sell the premises to Tesco. I think the small supermarket they are proposing for the site will be a real asset to the village.
"The restaurant will remain open for business as usual until a decision is made on Tesco's planning application and I will, of course, keep all staff and customers informed of progress along the way."
