Tesco to open in Churchdown in the Autumn
WORK is due to start soon on the new Tesco store in Churchdown.
The supermarket giant said up to 100 jobs will be created when its branch in Cheltenham Road East is opened in the Autumn.
The news comes more than three years after plans for the store were first revealed.
Councillors have said they are pleased the 'eyesore' site is finally to be developed.

Councillor Bill Whelan (LB, Innsworth with Down Hatherley) who is chairman of GL3 Community Hub opposite the Tesco site said: "It's been a long time coming.
"There was a lot of opposition because people think Churchdown is a village and shouldn't have a supermarket but it has a population of some 11,000 and a bit of competition for the Co-Op will be good."
