Tesco plans to open store at former Golden Fleece pub in Totteridge
TESCO has confirmed it is planning to open a store at the former Golden Fleece pub in Totteridge.
The supermarket chain wants to open a Tesco Express at the site in Hatters Lane, High Wycombe and hopes the store will open in the summer.
Tesco spokesman Carol Leslie said: "We wrote to neighbours in November about our plans and have already received a lot of interest about jobs. No applications have been submitted as yet but we hope to do this next month.
"We think this is an excellent opportunity to regenerate this former pub site and bring it back to use.
"We believe it will benefit the area by encouraging people to shop locally and also cut down on car journeys to other areas. It will also be extremely convenient for residents living nearby who have no transport or those preferring to shop on foot. It’s equally very popular with the elderly and many people have contacted us to say it would be a great benefit to them."
The store would create around 20 jobs, if it got planning permission.
