TESCO Express in Upper Gornal is set to temporarily close later this month.

The Kent Street branch will close its doors to customers this Sunday, August 18, while work is carried out to spruce up the store.

The supermarket giant has reassured shoppers that the branch will reopen on Thursday, September 10.

A Tesco spokesperson said: "We’re pleased to announce that we’re refreshing our Gornal Dudley Express store, bringing a new look and feel to the shop for our customers.

"The store will temporarily close on Sunday 16th August to allow work to take place and will re-open on Thursday 10th September.

"We apologise for any inconvenience caused to our customers during the closure. The nearest alternative Tesco store is on Highland Road and Tesco also offer an online delivery service. We hope customers enjoy the refreshed store once we reopen next month.”
