Tesco Express, 5 Bridge Road
Tesco are now extending their network into places as small as the village of Cookley. The store opens 6am to 11pm every day, including Sunday which they can do because of the store's floor size. It may be convenient but its appearance doesn't gel very well with the surrounding buildings.

Tesco always maintain that their arrival on new terrain has no adverse effect on existing businesses. In Cookley the owners of a convenience store in Lionfields Road, who wished to retire, had their shop on the market for about two years but were unable to sell it despite a significant reduction in the price. As a result they applied for planning permission in 2009 to change it to residential use. This not untypical situation explains why the arrival of a Tesco store can create much controversy, although it would be fair to say that there would be many people who would appreciate these long opening hours and the range of items on offer.
