Tesco Express store plans for Westward Ho!

Supermarket giants looking to create a store in surplus amusement arcade space in Golf Links Road.

WESTWARD HO! could have its own Tesco Express store next year if plans if the its plans are successful.

The superstore chain confirmed it had been in talks with the Sunshine Leisure amusement arcade in Golf Links Road to purchase some of its surplus space.

Tesco spokesman Matt Magee said: “We’d like to have a new store in Westward Ho! which we think would be a positive and popular addition to the town.

“We have an agreement to lease some space currently used by the old amusement arcade which the owners no longer require. “The arcade would reduce in size but continue as a local attraction, next to a new Tesco Express store.”

It is thought an application for the store, which could provide up to 20 new jobs, will be submitted in the Autumn.
