Town’s high street welcomes Tesco Express opening

Tesco Express has opened its doors in Dawley, bringing a major convenience store to the town’s high street.

Telford & Wrekin Council leader Shaun Davies joined ward, town and parish councillors and the Tesco team to cut the ribbon and celebrate the opening of the transformed former Co-op building.

The store has created up to 15 jobs.

Davies said: “We are delighted that Tesco Express is now open in Dawley which is great news for Dawley High Street and the residents of Dawley and beyond.

“In a very difficult trading environment, we’re doing as much as we can to transform Dawley High Street and the opening of this major retail store is a great example of that.

“We secured a new Post Office in Dawley earlier this year with extended opening hours and continue to make funding available to businesses through our Pride in Our High Street programme.

“It’s not easy, but we’re committed to delivering what residents have told us they want – a thriving Dawley High Street.

“The arrival of Tesco Express not only provides more shopping options for our community but also offer valuable employment opportunities for our residents.”
