Tesco and Co-op one step closer for Gloucester city centre opening
TWO new city centre supermarkets are a step closer to opening.
Tesco Express is opening at the former JJB store in Southgate Street.
The Co-operative is opening in the former Animal clothing store in Eastgate Street.
Both national supermarket chains were granted permission for their external signs by Gloucester City Council's planning committee on Tuesday night.

Tesco will adopt grey hoarding, while the Co-op will have a white frontage with green hanging signs.
Councillor Jeremy Hilton, leader of the city's Liberal Democrat group, welcomed both the stores.
He said: "We are now going to have four well known names in the city centre and it just gives people more reason to come back into the centre to do their food shopping rather than going out of town.
"This is a positive move for the regeneration of the city centre."
Work is under way on both stores.
