Tesco is opening a new chain of discount stores under the name Jack's.
It's part of an effort to compete with Aldi and Lidl.
The first two branches will open tomorrow in Chatteris in Cambridgeshire and Immingham in Lincolnshire.
Up to 15 stores will open over the next year, with five existing Tesco properties being repurposed and the remainder being new outlets.
Most products will be Jack's own brand and the chain will have 2,600 lines.
Jack's was officially launched by the new managing director Lawrence Harvey today in #Chatteris.— Cambridgeshire News (@HeartCambsNews) September 19, 2018
