Tesco is to open a convenience store on Great Suffolk Street.
The supermarket chain has applied for planning permission and a premises licence for the new store which – if approved – will be open 7 days a week between 7am and 11pm.
The company has applied for permission to install a cash machine outside the new store.
The Unite student residence has 230 rooms and a new 122-room Premier Inn hotel will soon be built next door.
A new Hilton hotel is currently under construction nearby.
