A new discount supermarket has announced the opening date for its new store.
Jack’s Supermarket, part of the Tesco family, is set to open in the city this July, with families bargaining for their weekly store.
The store will replace the vacant Mothercare store in Kingston Retail Park.
Proposals have been submitted to Hull City Council to transform the retail park’s unit unit into a budget food and homeware store.
Representatives of the supermarket have confirmed that they have moved forward, and the supermarket will open to the public in the summer.
The Jack Supermarket was named after Tesco founder Jack Cohen, who was committed to bringing affordable food to all.

Jax is committed to helping customers get five days a week with the new five offer; Selection of five fruits or vegetables each 35 p.
There are some fantastic bargaining chips in Jack’s WIGIG (if it’s gone it’s gone) section.
The latest products include the inflatable kayak for just £ 80 and the children’s balance bikes for 25 each. Limits are updated weekly, so shoppers should keep an eye out for a bargain.
What’s more, the launch of the new store brings 17 new opportunities to the region.
Available jobs include two shift-leader positions and 15 customer assistant roles, with contracts ranging from eight to 25 hours per week.

Chris Dimline, Area Manager, Jax, said: “We are proud of our work with the local community, from fun days at the store to grassroots sports sponsorships, and making a difference by learning more about the Hull people and supporting them.
“We are currently recruiting for a number of store roles, so I urge anyone who wants to be part of the rewarding and supportive team to apply without delay.
“We are pleased to bring Jacks to Hull People, not only providing the best quality products at incredible value, but also providing a friendly, safe environment for shoppers.
“Jax is a supermarket that strives to be at the heart of the community. Regular charitable endeavors, fundraising and donations are made almost every day.”
Jocks owns Tesco and currently has 12 stores, including three in Yorkshire and one in Lincolnshire. Tesco launched the brand in 2018 to gain growing competition from other discount supermarkets such as Aldi and Little.
The first two Jack stores opened in September 2018 in Immingham, north-east Lincolnshire, and Chattris, Cambridgeshire.
Stores are open in Sheffield, Barnsley and Wakefield and in seven cities and towns.
The store in Hull is the 13th Jack to open in the last three years, with three locations in and around Immingham and three Yorkshire locations; Sheffield, Wakefield and Barnsley.
