Tesco plans to open its 11th store in Liverpool city centre. Consultants, on behalf of the supermarket, have submitted plans to the city council for a new express branch in Dale Street. The store will be located in the former Spar unit on the ground floor of the former Pioneer buildings – near the corner of Vernon Street – which are being converted into a hotel.
It will be within five minutes walk of two Tesco stores in Old Hall Street and Lord Street.
Local traders and the Liverpool Preservation Trust are all concerned about the plans.
