Tesco said it will also expand home delivery to the two cities; it first launched its online service in the Slovak capital of Bratislava last October.

Last month, Tesco reported a fall in first-quarter sales in Slovakia, although, in its last full financial year to 23 February, the country was the only of its regional markets to see sales increase.

CEO Philip Clarke admitted Tesco had slowed its expansion in the region amid the “uncertain” economic conditions. The retailer’s local operations, Clarke said, needed to “focus hard” on “making more” of their existing businesses.

However, Tesco has insisted the long-term outlook for the region is “looking very good”.
