Tesco has opened a new store in Chatteris today, inheriting the space that Jack’s once held on Fenland Way after the decision was made to close all Jack’s stores.
Since the closure from March 6 the shop has seen a refurbishment and made many more products available to the people of the market town and those living around it.
The people of the town seem to happily welcome the Tesco as an alternative to the Aldi already there.
We spoke with shoppers today - when speaking to one family they said that they enjoyed having the larger number of options despite Tesco seeming more expensive than the Jack’s that stood before it.
We also spoke to some young people who visited the shop today. The trio seemed very happy about the new addition, stating that as people with less access to travel it is easier to get things they would usually be unable to get because it’s simply not available where they live.
