    Storm Desmond will not get the better of Tesco

    Tesco has built a 10,000 sq ft temporary store in just 7 days to replace it’s flooded superstore on Warwick Road, Carlisle.

     

    We have all read about the devastating effects of Storm Desmond following a string of terrible storms across the UK, however Tesco have proved that nothing will stop them from serving their customers. Around 100 staff members helped to construct a temporary shop in the original site’s car park in a bid to ensure that the people of Carlisle were not left without essentials and festive favourites just before Christmas.

    Staff were evacuated from the store on the first weekend of December after water rose to waist height and businesses all over the region ground to a halt. The store is currently in the process of being refurbished and is looking to reopen in late January.
