Tesco has announced it will no longer operate stores under the Jack’s brand.

Of the 13 Jack’s stores, six will convert to Tesco superstores, with the remaining seven Jack’s stores to close in the coming months.

Tesco says Jack’s has helped the Group become more competitive, more efficient and has strengthened the value it offers to customers – including the launch of Aldi Price Match as well as the Fresh 5 fruit and veg discount proposition which has since launched in businesses across the Group.

Jack’s branded products will continue to be available to independent convenience stores supplied by Booker.

In the six stores to be converted to Tesco, Jack’s colleagues will be automatically offered in-store roles. Tesco will also be recruiting additional colleagues to help run these stores.

There are 130 roles in the seven closing stores and in head office that will be affected by these changes.

Tesco UK and ROI CEO, Jason Tarry said: “We have learnt a huge amount from Jack’s and this has helped Tesco become more competitive, more efficient and strengthened our value proposition, including through the launch of Aldi Price Match. In turn, this has enabled us to consistently attract new customers to Tesco from our competitors over the last two years and we know they increasingly recognise the value they can find at Tesco. With the learnings from Jack’s now applied, the time is right to focus on ensuring we continue to deliver the best possible value for customers in our core business.

“Our Jack’s brand will continue to be sold across Booker and our symbol brands, bringing great value and quality to even more customers. We want to thank our Jack’s colleagues for all they have done and taught us. Our priority is to find roles within our wider business for all the colleagues who want to stay with us.”
