By The BBC News Service, 17 October 2018 07:45:46The new supermarket line in the US has been announced by Tesco, and it’s one of the largest yet.
The new Tesco Express grocery store will open in New York in 2019.
The New York City-based retailer, which has been around since 1884, said it would open a grocery store in the boroughs of Brooklyn and Manhattan, with its first stores in Queens and Brooklyn in 2021.
The Brooklyn store will be its first in New Jersey, as well as in Brooklyn, Manhattan and Staten Island, and is set to open in 2019, it said.
It will be the first supermarket to open up in Manhattan since its opening in 2003.
The store will have a mix of traditional groceries and other “food and beverage” products, as opposed to traditional supermarkets, such as supermarket bread, milk, cheese and meats.
It is being built by US-based investment bank Fortress Investment Group, with a team of US and foreign investors.
