All staff at Horsham’s new Tesco Express live local to the town, its manager has said at the shop’s grand opening this morning (Friday August 9).
Phill Smallwood told the County Times that out of the 17 staff members at the Brighton Road store, 14 were previously unemployed.
All are local to Horsham.
Tesco Express, based at the former Silver Wok site, has been the subject of a campaign by locals who say the store is not needed in the area.
A spokesman for Tesco said: “We are excited to be opening the store and looking forward to welcoming customers and serving the community for many years to come.”
