Tesco supermarket in Derbyshire town gets major revamp

A Tesco supermarket in a Derbyshire town is undergoing a major revamp which will see a bigger clothing section introduced.

Customers who have visited the Tesco Extra branch, in Ilkeston, may have noticed that work is currently ongoing on part of the store.

This is because the retail giant is revamping the Rutland Street outlet with a number of improvements, including adding a larger selection of its own-brand F&F clothing range.

All of the work is set to be completed by next Saturday, February 19, a Tesco spokesman confirmed.

He said: “We’re excited that our Ilkeston store is being revamped to offer a better experience for our customers.

“As well as improved fixtures and fittings the store will have a larger selection of F&F clothing.

“We thank customers for their patience while the work is being carried out.”

Last month, Tesco announced that customers visiting its supermarkets and convenience stores in Derbyshire will now be able to pay for their shopping without using cash or card.

The retail giant has come up with a new way for over 20 million shoppers to pay at its outlets across the country, including its supermarket in Kipling Drive, Mickleover, and the Tesco Metro store in St Peter’s Street, in Derby city centre.

All Clubcard members can now apply online for Tesco Clubcard Pay+, which is a sort of pre-payment debit card provided by Tesco Bank, The MEN reported.

Shoppers can add money and ringfence their grocery spend from any UK bank account into their Tesco Clubcard Pay+ account, using the Tesco Bank mobile banking app.
