Tesco is to open its tenth SE1 convenience store as part of Barratt's Blackfriars Circus development at St George's Circus.
When the store opens, SE1 will have 13 Tesco outlets: one full-size supermarket in Old Kent Road, two Tesco Metro branches (Tooley Street and Elephant & Castle) and ten Tesco Express convenience stores.
• Earlier this week Southwark council leader Peter John and cabinet members Mark Williams and Stephanie Cryan visited Blackfriars Circus to view The Didbin Apartments, the block of 56 flats the council has bought from Barratt to be let at council rents.
