Tesco confirms that store in Sunderland's Bridges Shopping Centre will close in April

Tesco bosses have confirmed that the Express store in the Bridges Shopping Centre will close next month.

In December last year, it was confirmed that the Tesco Express store in the Bridges Shopping Centre was set to close in the summer of 2022.

Now the Echo understands that the store is set to close in early April, however an exact date is yet to be given.

Bosses at the supermarket chain branded the decision to close the city centre store as “difficult” and that their priority is to support the staff that are affected.
