BOSSES at Jack’s have confirmed to The Standard that the store on New Road in Rubery will not be closing.
Posts and comments on social media had suggested the shop was going to shut.
The supermarket, formerly Tesco Metro, was one of the first Jack’s in the country to open in October last year.
The brand, named after Tesco founder Jack Cohen, was created in response to competition from German giants Aldi and Lidl.
The new store was aimed at operating on a ‘low-cost’ model in order to keep costs down and prices low.
But it has received a mixed response from the community.
Three weeks ago Rubery’s Jack’s store vowed to clean up the car park and area around the supermarket after receiving complaints from those living nearby and shopping there.
And, in response to the closure rumours, a spokesperson told The Standard: “We can confirm that the Jack’s store on New Road is not closing.”
