business news in context, analysis with attitude

• The Las Vegas Business Press reports that Tesco plans six stores for the Sin City region, though no business licenses have been approved to this point. The company is comparing the stores to Trader Joe’s and Wild Oats, though is not revealing too much about the format to the local media.

“The first Tesco store will debut at 8650 W. Tropicana Ave.,” according to the Business Press. “The company signed a 20-year, $4.7 million lease to occupy 14,253 square feet of space inside Gatski Commercial's new eight-acre complex.

“Other sites identified by Tesco for Fresh & Easy include 6105 W. Tropicana Ave.; 3186 S. Nellis Blvd.; 467 E. Silverado Ranch Blvd., and at Desert Inn and Fort Apache roads. A 14,000-square-foot Tesco/Fresh & Easy Neighborhood Market is already under construction at Tropicana Avenue and Jones Boulevard, according to industry sources.”
