There will be a new Tesco Express on Cardiffsbridge Road (up beside the big Church) opening soon, saw signs today in Tesco Extra and on the hoarding itself outside the new store... no date as of yet though.

You can contact the Tesco Extra store at Clearwater if you want to apply for a job.

maybe the people in the spar shop directly next door and the other shop 2 doors up should get in early and apply before tesco puts their employers out of business. It will be interesting to see what the prices will be like before and after they send those 2 shops to the wall.

in fairness to those two shops would they be much of a loss?

Spar has the rudest people in the world working there, you are standing there waiting to be served and they just continue reading their paper and you never know what time they are going to open at in the morning.

as for the chinese shop - i think that is the scariest places in finglas, i was in there on Friday night and wasnt sure i was going to get out in one piece.

Nope, the woman who seems to be owner/manager of the Spar who's there at "opening time" every morning to sign for the deliveries is one of the rudest "small shop" owners I've ever encountered. Also, it must be the only Spar in the country that doesn't take Laser, wtf is up with that?

The other shop is grand, I just don't go in because they don't sell my brand of smokes, but at least the chinese guy who works there is friendly.

If I was going down there for bread or milk or anything, I'd go into the non-Spar shop.

This new Tesco is being run by the same people who run the Tesco in Clearwater though, so I expect yet more rude, surly staff in there too, to match the absolute dregs of society who work in Clearwater Tesco.

The only Tesco I even half don't mind going into is the one in Artane Castle. Clare Hall isn't bad either I suppose.

ahh the chinese shop is grand, they're nice and friendly. they do have to put up with local scum frequenting it more than spar though. Just throw a few shapes when you walk in, blend in with the other customers and you'll be grand.

Can't argue with you about yer one in spar though, I feel like doing a dance to get her attention some days, and then she looks at you with a face like thunder. I think I'll stick with the chinese shop though, the staff are nice and smiley in there.

My issue with this place is not the staff but the unbelileivable levels aof scum that frequent the place,almost everybody seems to be buying drink,kids are commonly running round at 11 at night and the place is riddled with scumbags in pajamas rampaging through the shop.

Not true at all. Separate shop, separate managers, separate staff. Would love to know where you got that information . As for the staff in Clearwater, not all are rude or surly.

You absolutely can. And I'm not gonna lie, some of the people I work with are indeed extremely rude to customers but I'm not like that. I've no reason to be rude or ignorant to customers. I don't particularly like it when I'm in other shops and staff are rude to me, so I'm not going to be a hypocrite and be like that in my own workplace.

Shopped and worked there. It's unfair to generalise the entire workforce there based on some of the staff. Like I've said above, we're not all like that.
