Every little helps… Tesco doing it’s bit for the trades industry

Wherever you look in the UK, there is always a Tesco nearby. The supermarket behemoth is everywhere and have infiltrated nearly every area of retail you can imagine, from car insurance to clothes to TV’s and leaving the other supermarket’s in its shadow.

But Tesco have also done their bit for the trades industry by awarding £300 million worth of construction contracts in the first seven months of 2010, according to the Construction Index. 47 new-build, extension or refurbishment contracts have been awarded across the UK, creating lots of trades jobs in the process.

Tesco isn’t even worrying in the current financial climate, as it has announced in the past week that it is to build four new stores in the UK, as it has received planning permission in Hull, County Durham, Kent and East Ayrshire.

Tesco is so successful that for every £3 spent on groceries in the UK, it receives £1 of it. And with Tesco only going to carry on its domination of the supermarket scene, it could create thousands more trades jobs as more and more new stores are built around the UK.
