Grade II-Listed Building Transformed into 1500th Tesco Express

On the 21st September, Tesco opened its 1500th Express store after conversion works were completed by a team from R G Carter. The milestone store is located on the ground floor of a Grade II-listed art deco building in Richmond, London.

The former café and bakery features a unique art deco frontage, which has been sensitively preserved by our team. Individual Tesco steel lettering makes up the signage, in keeping with the 1930s style of the building.  

To celebrate the opening of the new store, the first customers were welcomed through a red and blue balloon archway. A cake replica of the store was specially commissioned to mark the occasion.
