Tesco said ‘Colleagues at our Stroud store have done an amazing job over the past year and we have a range of measures in place to thank them for all their hard work including a doubling of the usual colleague discount in the run up to Christmas and in-store activities, such as a free prize draw to win a TV and other prizes.
