Tesco says 'not yet' for Gloucester Dobbies following local speculation

A Tesco development in Gloucester could include a Dobbies garden centre but representatives of the supermarket, which owns Dobbies, has sought to dampen speculation that the Dobbies will be built soon, as reported in local press.

Any planning application for a Dobbies is believed to be some months away, despite Tesco winning permission for a bigger store at St Oswalds to replace an existing one as well as two new retail units.

A Tesco representative said: "We want to bring forward the best plans for St Oswalds' residents and our customers in Gloucester.

"While we are delighted to secure planning permission for a bigger store and two new retail units in 2011, we are considering some changes in response to customer feedback.

"It's early days and we are still working hard to develop our proposals."
