Tesco building more stores

British retail chain Tesco plans this year to build a further four massive ‘hypermarket’ stores in Slovakia, in Prievidza, Poprad, Trenčín and Piešťany, adding another 1,400 workers to its current ranks of 6,000. The chain already has eight such stores in the country, as well as another five retail centres.

Tesco is Slovakia’s largest retail chain and works with over 1,000 domestic suppliers, who provide 90 per cent of Tesco’s shelf goods.
