“In addition to all this, our lease contracts also oblige us to stay open; and in our own properties, in which we also operate a line of stores in addition to the larger hypermarkets, we are responsible for our hundreds of tenants, typically small and medium-sized businesses, who reasonably expect that the Tesco store is open and working,” they said.
