A NEW Tesco will open its doors to villagers from later this year.
It will replace a convenience store in High Street, Northchurch, and the vacant Threshers off-licence next to it.
The One Stop Shop, part of the Tesco franchise, will close on June 18 for 14 to 16 weeks of refitting.
Company bosses pledge that the post office inside the store will still be there when it reopens as a larger Tesco Express. All staff will be kept on, and some new faces may be recruited.
Phone the Gazette to tell us what you think of the new Tesco - 01442 898451.
