Jobs under threat at the Tesco Express in Studley

Ross Crawford 23rd Sep, 2019

UP to six jobs are under threat at the Tesco Express in Studley.

The move comes in what Tesco described as ‘an increasingly competitive and challenging retail environment’.

The supermarket is believed to be planning to install an extra, card only self-service till at the Alcester Road branch and a spokesman said the firm was ‘in consultation with colleagues’ over the plans.

It is understood staff will be informed of any job losses from October.

Last month Tesco announced it was streamlining processes at its 153 Metro stores and at 134 of its 1,750 Express stores.

Nationwide it is expected the moves will see 4,500 people lose their jobs.

It’s the latest blow to the Alcester Road shop where the Post Office has announced it will be cutting the opening hours of its in-store concession.

Back in February 2017 the Post Office announced it would be opening from 8am to 8pm Monday to Sunday.

However now those hours will revert back to closer to where they once were with an all day Sunday closure and a half day on Saturdays.

A Post Office spokesperson, said: “The operator of Studley Post Office has reviewed customer usage at this store and the vast majority of customers at this branch visit during the revised Post Office opening hours that come into effect on September 29.

The new opening hours are Monday to Friday: 9am to 5.30pm; Saturday: 9am to 12.30pm.

“We have posters on display at the branch informing customers of this change.”
