More than 350 people have been told their jobs at a Teesside supermarket are safe, despite the store being sold.
Tesco recently reported annual profits of £1.4b
The full and part-time workers at the Savacentre store, in Stockton, will all be offered jobs by new owners Tesco.
The supermarket, currently owned by Sainsbury's, will close on 7 June before re-opening as a Tesco Extra later in the summer.
This is the second change of name over the doors of the store on the north-western fringe of Stockton.
It originally opened as a North Eastern Co-op but changed hands in November 1995, becoming Sainsbury's second Savacentre store in the North East.
Kevin Plant, Sainsbury's regional business manager, said sales had been declining in Stockton for a number of years.
He said that had prompted what he called a difficult decision to sell to another supermarket chain.
Tesco, the UK's biggest supermarket group, recently reported annual profits of £1.4b and said it was creating 20,000 new jobs throughout all their stores.
