All eyes in the retail sector will be on a small market town in eastern England on Wednesday as Tesco unveils its latest weapon in the war against the discounters.

Britain’s biggest retailer has chosen Chatteris in Cambridgeshire for the launch of its new discount format, which it hopes will give Aldi and Lidl a taste of their own cut-price medicine.

The new discount chain will trade under the name Jack’s, in tribute to Jack Cohen, the man who founded Tesco in east London 99 years ago.


A new meaning for the phrase "going to the jack's"...

Seems to have been a man ahead of his time. He did what Aldi/Lidl are doing now.

IMHO, "Jack's" is not a great name for the store. Too self referential. Sounds like it was invented by a committee.

I assumed the Jack's name was a nod to Aldi's US offshoot, Trader Joe's.

Sure, if they come to Ireland, it'll be called "Mick's" XD

TheJournal - Lidl accuses rivals of 'planned and sustained campaign' to block it building new stores
The actions of Tesco Ireland and RGData serve their individual interests only; actions which are anti-competitive, anti-better value for consumers and anti-job creation.
In lodging objections on spurious and, in many instances, on contradictory grounds both Tesco and RGData are misusing the planning system designed to cater for bona fide observations.
For their part, Tesco and RGData have denied these claims from Lidl, and said they would never submit frivolous claims or misuse the planning system.

That is a subsidiary of the 'other' Aldi but I assumed the same.

As Tesco launched two variants in the last 20 years. Tesco Express and Tesco Metro, and as both are utterly utterly shite executions in their segments, I can see where this variant is headed already. :D

Tesco only ever became compelling when they went to big box stores in the second half of the 1980s.

RGdata are a vile pile of crooks who only want to gouge the public, they should be locked up the lot of them. :(
