    Talking Latest on Tesco

    Just been to the Tesco Question Time at the Nethercliffe Hotel! It was very interesting indeed and lasted about 90 minutes.

    The new store is planned to open here in December and will be looking to employ between 175 - 300 new staff. The minimum wage being nearly £6 per hour.

    There will be a drive-thru car wash and cafe at the new store as well as everything else Tesco usually offer including clothes, electrical items, fresh food deli's etc..

    The store itself will be slightly bigger than the one in Dingwall and will probably be open from 6am - 12 midnight.

    Petrol will cost the same or less as the lowest price within a 3 mile radius. And the petrol station may well be open 24 hours.

    Other items bought instore will be the same price as all other stores.

    Thumbs up

    That sounds good to me. I live in the Thurso area but I have no objections to traveling to Wick to get my shopping, although if Asda get the go ahead in Thurso I will be going there.

    So now we know what the hold up was with the Planning Permission.

    Three mile radius? what a strange figure to pick?
    I wonder if any product other than fuel is subject to the same restriction?
    Animals I like, people I tolerate.

    The 3 mile radius thing is Tesco policy and done within all of their stores, up here it won't make much difference but in cities it has previously led to price wars and some off the smaller garages closing.

    If Tesco are going to price their petrol on the basis of a comparison of other garage prices within a 3 mile radius then Wick garage owners will dictate what Tesco's fuel prices will be. So much for any hope of reasonable petrol prices then.
    God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change,
    Courage to change the things I can,
    And wisdom to know the difference.
