Tesco breathes new life into Toxteth
Publishing date: 13.07.2011

Tesco's new superstore is bringing employment and investment to the run-down area of Liverpool, but some people don't like it. The Guardian, July 13, 2011

On one side of High Park Street in Toxteth is a brutalist 1970s jobcentre with a posse of youths loitering outside. On the other is a spanking new Tescosuperstore.
"It's handy," says Richard Hatley, the store's manager. "More than 80% of our people came from local jobcentres."
Planning approval to build the 100,000 sq ft store was conditional on the company agreeing that half of its staffing hours would be filled by the long-term unemployed.

With the level of dole claimants in Liverpool already twice the national average, such opportunities are precious. The Toxteth riots 30 years ago this month turned Liverpool into the focus of national angst about the impact of the 1980s recession but, despite Conservative minister Michael Heseltine being parachuted in to save the city, it has continued to suffer highunemploymentand depopulation.
