286 London Road, CR4 3NB
The Tesco supermarket was opened around 1970 on the ground floor of Deseret House, London Road.
When it was announced by Tesco that this supermarket was to close, local MP Siobhain McDonagh wrote to the chief executive. Tesco then agreed to open a smaller ‘express’ store next door, in the building called Standor House. This store has the words ‘Established 2005’ written on the front, top left of its banner. See Google StreetView below.
The Tesco Express closed on 5th November 2016.
