TESCO fans will be blown away by one of its biggest stores in the UK – and it’s almost as big as two football pitches.
One of the biggest Tesco supermarkets is in the Ellesmere Shopping Centre in Walkden, Greater Manchester.
Tesco is known for its trusty Clubcard deals, cafes and F&F clothing sections, and this store has it all and more.
From Tesco Extra, Tesco Superstore and Tesco Express, there’s a whole range of stores from little to large.
This Extra store covers over 104,000 sq ft and is the seventh largest Tesco in the country.
It has a clothing department, homeware section, fresh bakery and hot meat counter.
The store also offers home delivery and click and collect services.
It first opened in 2010, but shoppers still drive for miles to the huge store to search the aisles for bargains.
Two customers posted about the superstore on TikTok, and said: “We travelled half an hour to go to the biggest Tesco in the UK.”
After exploring the “massive” aisles for meal deals and toys, the pair headed to the checkouts where they waiting in a “huge” queue to be served.
Another video posted on the social media site shows the scale of the huge store.
Tesco fans rushed to comment with hundreds writing that they couldn’t wait to visit.
One TikTok user said: “I get more jealous every time I see one of these. I have to go there.”
While another added: “Oh now this is a BIG Tesco.”
And a third tagged their pal and said: “Can we go there? I love a big Tesco.”
Simon Kirkham, a manager at the store, said he does more than 15,000 steps just walking around the store during his shift.
He said: “We’re not surprised TikTok users think our store is the largest in the UK.
“Walkden Extra is a huge store with a wide range of products to choose from, and it’s a great place to shop.”
The store is open from 6am to midnight Monday to Saturday, and 10am to 4pm on Sunday.

Top tips for shopping in Tesco
The best way to bag a bargain at Tesco is to equip yourself with a Clubcard.
It’s free to get one and you can have a virtual version or a physical card if you prefer – just sign up online and you can start cashing-in on discounts and loyalty offers right away.
You collect one point for every £1 spent in store and online and one for every £2 spent on fuel.
Then, one point is worth 1p of a future shop in Tesco – so you can earn money-off vouchers after you’ve racked up enough.
You can also trade them in for three times the value with Tesco’s reward partners, such as Hungry Horse pub or Cineworld.
You get immediate discounts in-store and online with the Clubcard too though.
You can also pick up hand scanners at the front of Tesco before you even start you shop.
The scanners can give you a better idea of what your bill is going to look like before you get to the checkout, but they can also highlight “secret” and “hidden” bargains.
Yellow sticker bargains are like gold dust to some shoppers.
You can often save up to 75% off products marked up in this way, so it’s worth keeping an eye out in the store.
One shopper managed to score £60 worth of food from Tesco for just £16 once she’d tracked down the colour coded bargains herself.
