Rumours have been circulating that Tesco are planning to open a new Express branch on the borders of Newport/Carisbrooke.
The former site of Hartwells Vauxhall garage on the corner of Carisbrooke Road and Wellington Road has been empty for some time.
We’d received a tip-off that Tesco were planning to start recruiting for an Express store on the site.
However, a spokesperson from Tesco Corporate Affairs told On The Wight, “Usually we do not comment on rumours or speculation, but can confirm that we have no current plans for a store at this site.”
That clear that up then!
