Asbestos removal shuts shop
THE Tesco Metro store in Macclesfield town centre has closed while asbestos is removed.
The Exchange Street store closed on Sunday and will re-open on November 26 after a general refurbishment.
A spokesman from the store said: “Essential maintenance to remove low risk asbestos will also take place and the cash machine will be switched off as the power supply to the building is turned off.”
Cheshire East Council said they had been consulted over previous works in the Macclesfield Tesco store on materials possibly containing asbestos.
A council spokesman said: “The work was carried out in accordance with laid down procedures to safeguard staff and members of the public.
“The company has been informed that in the event of any further work involving asbestos material or suspected asbestos, the local authority or the Health and Safety Executive may need to be notified.”
