A SUPERMARKET giant will not be setting up a new shop in Swansea after being unable to agree a new leasehold deal.
Tesco has revealed it won't be taking up the lease on the former Pines Country Club site in Llangyfelach Road in Treboeth.
The local developer who owns the site is now free to get in touch with other operators.
Sophie Akokhia, Tesco's Corporate Affairs Manager, said: "Following discussions with the developer, we have decided not to take a lease for a store. We understand some local residents will be disappointed and wanted to see a Tesco store come forward.
"Tesco has been part of the Swansea community for more than a decade. We are proud to employ more than 1,500 people across the city and recently made a significant investment to improve our popular Marina store." The firm has pledged to invest to carry on investing in Swansea.
