9:00am Friday 24th January 2014 in News
Supermarket giant Tesco has confirmed it is looking into establishing a store in Haworth.
The retail giant, which this month unveiled plans to build a store in Silsden and create 200 jobs, has revealed its intentions for the Worth Valley, though did not specify a site.
Tesco spokesman Mark Thomas said: “We would love to bring a new convenience store to Haworth to serve the local community and we’re reviewing our options in the village.
“Should any application be submitted, residents would be consulted.”
Andrew Snowden, who owns JR Snowden general store in Mill Hey, warned if a Tesco comes to the village it would mean the end of his long-established shop.
And Tina Dowse, who works in Ibbotsons butchers and greengrocers, in Sun Street, said: “It would be a concern for any business here.”
