Adding ” We hope we can provide a real boost to the local area and we have recruited 15 new local colleagues.

In April 2022, 50 local residents raised concerns over Tesco’s application for an alcohol licence for their new store on the former Mazda Garage site in Dorchester Road, Broadwey.
Despite the objections, Tesco submitted an application stating that they have implemented policies, procedures, systems and training to ensure responsible alcohol sales. Additionally, the store will have CCTV coverage throughout the premises.
Tesco also claims to have a “good neighbour” ethos, with plans to actively participate in the local community.
