Does anyone know why the Elephant shopping centre tesco has been closed for the last few days?

Looking through the plate glass front, I spotted people wearing white disposable boilers suits, similar to those featured in CSI.

Today, many leafltes and poster have peen placed against the glass, making it harder (but not impossible) than it was to monitor what is going on inside

I am guessing that the problem is a pest control issue: many times I have spotted mice darting form the underside of one aisle to that of another.

Perhaps our SE1 sleuth, James, can get some better info on this?

Heard they had rats. The shop had to be cleared and washed.

Tesco won't say what's happening, and the council say they haven't taken action. Tonight I saw a mouse caught in a glue trap in the bread aisle:

Tesco Metro Covent Garden was closed for ages... hygiene issues
Incidentally re Tesco Express The Cut... bought a same day date fish product. They had not reduced the price and had 3 left at 9pm showing full price of nearly five pounds.... so beware and don't be afraid to bring anomalies to Management attention

3 weeks sounds a lot for an infestation problem. Could it be the refrigeration units that do not work? I can't imagine the loss of earnings... Sainsbury and Iceland must be laughing all the way to the bank...
