Tesco has constructed a 10,000 sq ft temporary store in only one week to help clients influenced by the flood. The store is in the flood affected area in Carlisle, Cumbria, an urban settlement in England, United Kingdom. The temporary store opened on Friday and was developed as a replacement for its superstore in Warwick Road which was seriously affected by the aftermaths of Storm Desmond prior this month. Staff had to be cleared as flood waters infringed on the auto park and finally came to waist high inside.
Matt Davies, Tesco UK CEO said the company been helping groups crosswise over Cumbria after the floods and he was proud of the gigantic efforts made by their partners. Tesco have been giving food, toiletries and essentials crosswise over Cumbria from Carlisle to Kendal and each store in the area is going about as a drop-off point for gifts to the recuperation effort.
He included that the supermarket wanted to ensure that community in Carlisle were not left without the basic need services their store provides in the run up to Christmas. He lauded the efforts of the workers for their extreme efforts and dedication to get the temporary store up and running. Construction work on the temporary site started on December 11.
