think it will be quite nice having a tesco on the cut. Sainsburys only seem to d a small selection of microwave meals that i pick up on the way to and from work

i need more variety ;)

The Tesco Metro will be no different to Sainsbury's sadly. Mostly convenience stuff. There seem to be so many of these cookie-cutter stores opening in the area with choice getting reduced all the time. Another Tesco Metro is opening the other side of The Old Vic on Baylis Road. Sad times.

My concern really is that this is an empty property and today I have received an email from Tesco Property department saying they know nothing of a branch being installed on 'The Cut' - so the plot thickens --- curiouser and curiouser - said Alice - hmmm.

This is obviously a dark dismal looking empty property and have written Southwark council twice and Tesco - negative from Tesco and no reply at all from LBS - so --- may not be Tesco after all so what is proposed there - or could it be connected with the developers re Southwark tube/joan street squatters property/Styles

House etc..

Tesco have received planning permission for alterations to the frontage (replacing the roller-shutters on the left with ventilation louvres) so they certainly have/had an interest in the premises. And of course they wrote to local residents informing them of their intention to open a Tesco Express.

(nb Kenn12 - Tesco Metro stores are much bigger than the Tesco Express proposed for The Cut and Baylis Road)

Hoarding has now gone up in front of the shop, whereas Baylis Rd seems to be finished. Guess it is the same building team moving from one branch to another?

Some good news!

They have installed a cash machine in one of the 2 old telephone boxes outside the new Tesco.

It is working already, and proudly displays that it's only 1.50 to get your cash using your Debit card - a bargain, and well worth it I think.

They don't seem to be in any rush as Tesco is only now applying for a planning permission to change the shopfront
