15,000 jobs could go at Tesco

Updated: Jan 28, 2019

Tesco Britain’s largest supermarket chain has triggered the painful review after one of the toughest Christmas trading periods on record.

Tesco will reportedly axe 15,000 jobs as part of a £1.5bn cost-saving measure.

The supermarket chain will also close its meat, fish and delicatessen counters, according to the Mail on Sunday.

The paper claims in-store bakeries will also be overhauled, with fresh dough replaced with frozen dough.

The plans are expected to affect the majority of Tesco’s 732 larger stores.

Our large Tesco stores in Leicester which could be affected by the plans, are Hamilton, Beaumont Leys, Wigston and Narborough Road.
