BREAKING: Tesco scraps Harrogate superstore plans
In a shock reversal of policy, Harrogate will remain the only major postcode in Britain without a Tesco.
In a decision seemingly prompted by tough market conditions, Tesco confirmed they havwe finally ditched their plans to build a superstore on the site.
Protesters who claimed a new Tesco’s was not needed in the town and would increase traffic congestion will be delighted by the news.
