Rothesay building contractor George Hanson says Tesco will still be moving in to the shop unit in this new building in Guildford Square, currently under construction by Mr Hanson's firm.

The Rothesay businessman behind a new development in the centre of the town says that as far as he’s aware, supermarket giant Tesco will still be leasing part of his building.

George Hanson spoke to The Buteman in the wake of a statement from Tesco which appeared to cast some doubt on the company’s plans to open an Express store at 15-19 Montague Street, on the south side of Guildford Square, currently under construction by Mr Hanson’s firm.

“As far as I’m concerned,” Mr Hanson said, “the deal is struck and everything’s still going according to plan.”
