A couple who lost their car washing contract despite a local campaign to save them are seeking a new supermarket to work with.
Tz Tzankoy and Pepa Syarova ran a franchise for car-cleaning firm Waves at Tesco North Harbour, until the shopping chain left them all washed up - much to the anger of local motorists who said the pair's Trolley Wash hand car wash was second to none.
Now they and their five employees are looking for a new site to run their business.
Mr Tzankoy said: 'We need to find somewhere new to work but don't want to leave the city.
'We have built up loyal customers here who are fighting for us and I know they will follow us if we find somewhere new.
'It is very frustrating to be cut off like this by Tesco, but this is not the end for us I am sure.'
Fans of Tz and Pepa have formed the Tesco Portsmouth Car Wash Action Group to try to change the company's mind, and await the result of a final meeting next week at which the firm might reconsider.
