CZECH: Tesco "bids" for local Plus business
Tesco has reportedly made a bid to buy Tengelmann's Plus stores in the Czech Republic.
The UK's largest grocer has emerged as a bidder for the 133 Plus discount outlets, according to Czech daily Mlada fronta Dnes.
The report claims that Tesco is among four interested parties in the stores. Lidl owner Schwarz Group, German retail giant Rewe and Interspar, a Czech Spar franchise, are also said to be eyeing the business.
Tengelmann ceded control of its Plus stores in Germany last month and is weighing up the options for its discount business throughout Europe.
Tesco, which already runs 93 stores in the Czech Republic, refused to be drawn on the reports. "We do not comment on rumours and speculation," a spokesman told just-food this afternoon (12 December).
