Leyland Tesco Extra shuts its petrol station for next 10 weeks
Tesco has shut its petrol station at its Leyland Extra store this week and it will remain closed for the next 10 weeks.
The filling station at the superstore in Towngate closed on Monday (August 1) and will remain shut until Monday, October 10.
Tesco say the more than two-month closure is to allow ‘maintenance works’ to take place on site.
A Tesco spokesperson said: “We apologise for any inconvenience caused by the temporary closure of our Leyland Extra petrol filling station which is undergoing maintenance works.
