Mr Buchanan said,
“Last week this matter was brought to my attention. I contacted Tesco’s Senior Leadership about this matter but as yet Tesco has failed to provide any clarity on why materials which are available in other UK stores are not available in Cookstown.
My constituents would like to know how the decision was made to exclude some stores from the national celebration of Her Majesty the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee but include other Northern Ireland stores.
The Tesco Happy and Glorious campaign which seeks to celebrate the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee has as part of it an opportunity to nominate a Jubilee Hero for a £700 gift card. The terms indicate that the competition runs in Northern Ireland but like merchandise, are some Northern Ireland stores excluded?
These are all questions my constituents would like answers to, but they have been met with a wall of silence from Tesco corporate.”
