A Tesco Express store in Oldham is to be transformed into a 'One-Stop'

Date published: 21 January 2021

A Tesco Express Store in Oldham is to converted into a branch of One Stop.

Tesco say the Lees Road store has been chosen to be fully refitted as a 'One Stop' to "better serve the local community". It will close on April 3 for works to be carried out before reopening in late April.

The Oldham Express currently employs 15 people and over the coming weeks they will all be part of a period of collective consultation regarding the changes. All colleagues working at the store will be able to be transferred to One Stop terms and conditions under TUPE regulations.

The TUPE regulations apply where either part or all of an organisation’s process and staff are transferred over to a new employer.

A Tesco spokesperson said: "We are rebranding our local Express store in Oldham to a One Stop store. We believe the One Stop brand will better serve the local community, and we look forward to continuing to provide customers with a range of great value products when this exciting new offer opens later this year."

One Stop has been a subsidiary of Tesco since 2003, but operates as a separate business.  They run 900 shops across the UK
