Fixtures removed ahead of Jack’s closure
The closure was announced last month, with Jack’s confirming the news via Facebook.
The announcement read: “We’re sorry to say that Jack’s stores are closing. On behalf of everyone at Jack’s, we’d like to say a big thank you for shopping with us, it’s been a real pleasure to self to serve you”
When the news was announced Jason Tarry, the chief executive of Tesco UK and Ireland, added: “We have learnt a huge amount from Jack’s and this has helped Tesco become more competitive, more efficient and strengthened our value proposition, including through the launch of Aldi price match.
“With the learnings from Jack’s now applied, the time is right to focus on ensuring we continue to deliver the best possible value for customers in our core business.
“Our Jack’s brand will continue to be sold across Booker and our symbol brands, bringing great value and quality to even more customers.
“We want to thank our Jack’s colleagues for all they have done and taught us. Our priority is to find roles within our wider business for all the colleagues who want to stay with us.”
The Immingham branch is set to close at the end of the week, on Sunday the 13th of March.
During the social media post, Jack’s said that ‘some’ stores including the Immingham branch would re-open as Tesco.
Several locals have expressed sadness at the upcoming closure.
Speaking via Facebook, one customer said: “I love shopping at Jack’s in Immingham, all the workers are so friendly and helpful, I will miss this store.”
“It’s all fine and well reopening as Tesco but it won’t be nearly as cheap as Jack’s. I can’t fault their products,” added another.
“The staff are fantastic too – nothing is too much trouble for them. I’m so sorry to see Jack’s go.”
