Supporting The Community
Tesco Swords will be managed by Gary Redmond, who previously managed the Tesco store in Rush.
“Our new store offers the best of fresh and local food to customers, with the community at the heart of the shopping experience," said Redmond. "We offer an extensive range of fresh food including a bakery, butcher, fish counter as well as a salad and sandwich bar to help busy shoppers who need food on-the-go."
