A NEW Tesco Express opening in Lincoln received about 200 applications for nine jobs.

The applicants were whittled down to 97 for interview before the final nine were recruited for the Grantham Road shop.

Store manager Neil Rusinowski said: “I was thrilled by the response we received. In this time of economic uncertainty, it is great that we are able to create jobs for our local community and help get people back into work.

“I am really pleased with my new team and I’m looking forward to working with my new staff. We are delighted to be opening a Tesco Express store on Grantham Road, and look forward to playing an active role in the local community.”

    Indyman - I can help with that debate. Yes, you should shop there, or not. Yes, they will make a contribution, or not. Yes, they will sell own brand spirits or other goods. lynn - aren't own-brand goods still branded? The clue is in the name.

    Uh-oh spaghettios, the herd's getting angry! "Baa! Baa! How dare you disparage our unthinking, docile consumerism and our mindless brand loyalty! Baaaaa!" I know who'll join me in laughing at you - your points-dispensing overlords... all the way to the bank in their case =)

    "After that , i'm on a one-man expedition of the North Pole for 5 months." I didn't realise Tesco's holiday entitlement was so generous. Gosh.

    Can someone please name the other 2 shops that are being built on that site, so we can have a pointless debate about whether we should shop there or not, whether they will make a contribution to the local economy or not, or even if they will sell their own brand spirts or other goods.

    @ BubbleMaker: Following your well structured and clearly defined arguement against Tesco, I've decided to join you and the masses of others that shop elsewhere on a saturday afternoon and glare angrily at people shopping in the air-conditioned comfort of an empty Tesco store thats open nice and late on a week night. Damn those shepherds of the brainless that you call Tesco Management for offering people things that they so clearly don't require.

    can anyone think of a more depressing scenario than sitting at home on the shwood downing supermarket brand spirits?

    Verily, thou art an inspiration. I humbly doff my cap to the most exciting human being on the planet." Thankyou, although i'm not the MOST exciting human being on the planet, far from it. Infact, like you, i like nothing more than whining about supermarkets. I'm off now as i'm to hand glide over the gran canyon this week. After that , i'm on a one-man expedition of the North Pole for 5 months. Amongst other exciting things etc etc. I bid you farewell. Good luck with your crusade. ****** shops. tut.

    Why do Tesco Express only sell branded spirits and not their own brand? Whichever way you look at it, they're flipping expensive. The only time I shop at the normal supermarket is when I have money off coupons that are really worth using. At the moment it's Sainsbury's enticing me in, with £10 off a £50 shop, and I've got four of those.

    "I have a busy and fulfilling life." Yes, obviously. That's why you registered on a local newspaper website to leap to the defence of a supermarket. Verily, thou art an inspiration. I humbly doff my cap to the most exciting human being on the planet.

    I hold my hands up. I don't actually know the prices of Tesco's or other supermarkets. I have a busy and fulfilling life. Have you starred in the ASDA price guarantee advert? Sounds like it. Anyway, my point was, i'm disappointed that i've had to go the lengths and make a comment on here. People upset because a supermarket is opening??? Please. Anyway, i'm going back to work now.
