Yes, despite Tesco’s store locator internet facility ignoring it the new Spring Hill Tesco has opened; in fact, I’m told, it opened on Monday 6 December but I couldn’t find anywhere that this was advertised! Strange that such a massive investment (and it is a massive store) was not leafleted around the city centre (it may have been to the residences in the spring hill area, I don’t know!).
Anyway, it has opened and it is an impressive new-look store. It has a very ample car park below the very large and airy sales area. As well as the usual dried and tinned food shelves there are large fresh food counters, and it seems to cater for local residents with extensive Halal and associated products…..massive sacks of Basmati Rice and chapati flour!
The fresh butchers stall contains an unusually extensive range of fresh mutton meat (see photo) – can anyone explain why? It has a community board reporting on local events, etc.
The store is a new experience and I would suggest a visit.
It is located on the corner of Spring Hill (road) meeting Iknield Street and Ladywood Middleway. See Google map below.
