Tesco, 9,000 staff jobs are at risk

The UK giant retailer has announced that up to 9,000 staff jobs will be at risk as it is closing its fresh food counters  and making cuts at its head office.

The company representatives expressed their intentions to redeploy half of these 9,000 employees who probably will lose their jobs in case the plan works to open new stores with different formats.

According to the Guardian, Jason Tarry, the chief executive of Tesco’s UK and Irish business, stated that Tesco had to adapt the needs of the market “We’re making changes to our UK stores and head office to simplify what we do and how we do it, so we’re better able to meet the needs of our customers.”

The Closures goes back to the under-performance of the mentioned format, so the Retailer is closing around 90 stores, but keeping 700 stores with edited shifts.
