British retailer Tesco opened a new supermarket in Quanzhou, Fujian province, which is the company's first outlet in this Chinese city.
As one of the top three retailers in the world, Tesco has nearly 6,000 outlets in 13 countries and regions.
The newly opened supermarket is Tesco's first outlet in Quanzhou, its fourth in Fujian, and its 14th store in southern China. This new store features a full LED lighting system, which has significant means for energy saving and emissions reduction.
Following Tesco's tradition to provide convenience to customers, the new Quanzhou supermarket will have six free shuttle bus routes. It also has over 2,500 parking spaces for motor vehicles and 2,000 for non-motor vehicles.
In addition, the retailer hopes to contribute to local construction and develop with the city. The newly opened store is expected to offer 500 new jobs to local people.
