It was officially opened by the Mayor of Gosport Councillor John Beavis and Gosport MP Caroline

Dinenage when they cut the Tesco ribbon.

Nigel Perman, store manager, said: ‘It has been a fantastic morning and the

store looks great.

‘It will give people in the area convenience and food which is suited for

them.’

The store created 150 jobs to local people who applied online or through

the job centre.

Nigel added: ‘The scheme Tesco used to get local people working here is

great and it gives the store a real community feel to it.’
