Tesco Gallows Corner was closed temporarily last night over “a concern for colleague and customer safety” after a group of Travellers moved into the supermarket’s car park.
The company's official Twitter page this morning (Friday, February 28) replied to a number of customers enquiring as to why the superstore in Bryant Avenue, Harold Wood, had closed with no prior notice or signage, and complaining about a lack of communication from staff members.
In response, a spokeswoman for the supermarket replied: "I'm really sorry that our Romford Gallows Corner Extra was shut last night.
