UK retail chain Tesco plans to add fifteen new stores to its branch network in Slovakia in 2010, the company said. The new CEO of the company's Slovak unit, John Christie, underlined that in this way, Tesco would continue its investment strategy for the local market. It would create 700 new job positions during the year in relation to the network expansion. This would represent a pick-up of its investment plans in comparison to 2009 when the retailer opened eleven new stores and created 570 new jobs. Tesco currently operates 81 stores in the country as well as sixteen fuel stations, giving employment to 8,300 people.
