Tesco has released detailed drawings showing the internal layout of the new Tesco Extra store currently under construction within Bradley Stoke’s new town centre development. The plans have been on display in the entrance of the existing Tesco store since late last week.
The new store, which will have a floorspace nearly two-and-a-half times that of the existing store, is due to open in “late autumn”. The steel framework of the new store is already in place and the roof and side walls are currently being added.
Retail space in the new store will be split over two floors. The ground floor will provide a range of goods and services similar to that available in the existing store, but with a wider choice of product lines. One new feature will be an opticians, located towards the rear of the ground floor. A “travel money pod” is also listed.
The upper (mezzanine) salesfloor, occupying only about one third of the store footprint (the remainder being given over to storage and offices) will be devoted to non-food items. Principal product groups on this floor are listed as clothing, electrical and home entertainment. Dedicated areas for products such as laptops, cameras, MP3 players and SatNav units can be made out in the plans.
New services advertised on posters in the car park of the existing store include a Tesco Direct desk (acting as a contact point for the supermarket group’s catalogue sales operation) and photo-processing.
More town centre news (including maps, plans, images and press releases) can be found in our dedicated New Town Centre pages, accessible from the sidebar of this website.
