Tesco consults customers on what will be available in new Lerwick supermarket extension
Tesco’s extension is well under way but shoppers have been given a say in exactly what fills the shelves once the job is done.
Views on what products should be stocked in the newly-developed store were being taken from customers yesterday afternoon and today from 10am to 2pm.
Tesco corporate affairs manager Doug Wilson said it was important customers coming into the South Road store had an influence over what was stocked.
“We’re inviting people to come along to the store . . . to give us their views on what they would like to see,” he said.
Mr Wilson added the construction work at the supermarket was “on-track” for its planned July opening. “There has been a lot of interest from customers on what is going on.”
Work on the extension began in April despite protests from the Lerwick Town Centre Association the development breached an agreement made with the SIC, although Tesco management said they were abiding by the planning consent that had been laid down.
The findings are expected to be known by the end of the week, Mr Wilson said.
