Tesco to sell opticians business to Vision Express

Tesco has agreed to sell its opticians business to Vision Express. In a statement, the supermarket said the move was in line with its plans to simplify its business and serve its shoppers better.

Tesco Opticians currently operates in 206 stores across the UK and has three stores in the Republic of Ireland. It employs approximately 1,500 people, all of whom will be covered by TUPE legislation to transfer into Vision Express following a consultation process.

Matt Davies, Tesco UK and ROI chief executive, said: “This allows us to further simplify and strengthen our UK business and ensures our customers are still able to enjoy high quality eye care services from Vision Express in our larger stores. Our priority now is to work with our colleagues and support them through this change.”

The disposal is subject to regulatory approval by the Competition and Markets Authority.
