Store gallery: Tesco’s first superstore in six years goes big on sustainability

The store is fitted with energy-efficient fridges and freezers, and lit entirely by low-energy LEDs

Tesco has today opened its first non-Jack’s superstore in six years, which sets out the new template the UK’s largest grocer believes will help it achieve its 2035 carbon-neutral target.

The grocer’s new 25,000 sq ft store, in Penwortham, Lancashire, is the first of four such stores to be opened by Tesco in the UK this year, and will create 80 new jobs in the area.
