THE NEW Jack’s budget supermarket in Rubery will be opening its doors next week, writes Lauren Tiller.

The Tesco-owned store will open at 8am on Thursday, October 18, on the site of the now-closed Tesco Metro in the village.

There will be an official ribbon cutting at the store at 10am.

The discount chain Jack’s is Tesco’s answer to the budget shopping boom led by German discounters Lidl and Aldi.

It has been named after Tesco founder Jack Cohen.

The Metro store was closed in August of this year resulting in around 60 job losses amidst rumours that the budget chain would become its replacement.

Jack’s area manager, Tony Sinkinson said: “Myself and my team of colleagues are delighted to be opening two new Jack’s.”

He added a lot of hard work had gone into getting the store and another one in Castle Bromwich (opening on November 1) ready for customers.
