Around 2,000 Tesco workers have been told their jobs are at risk after the supermarket giant announced the location of 43 store closures.
Seven superstores and six Homeplus outlets are among the unprofitable shops identified for closure by new chief executive Dave Lewis.
Mr Lewis said: "The decision to close the stores has been exceptionally difficult to take. I recognise it will affect many hard-working colleagues, our customers and local communities.
"Our priority is to explain what this announcement means for our colleagues and, wherever possible, offer them alternative roles with Tesco."

Administrators of collapsed courier firm City Link have announced 2,356 redundancies after a bid to buy the company failed.
A consortium is in talks with the administrators of collapsed courier firm City Link offering a glimmer of hope for a last-ditch rescue, a source confirmed today.
Staff at the company, many of whom learnt of its collapse on Christmas Day, have been warned to expect "substantial redundancies" among its 2,727-strong workforce.
But they were offered a small degree of hope after the RMT union disclosed details of a "credible bid" to save part of the business and called on administrators to suspend the redundancy process.
A source close to the talks confirmed they were under way.
"There is one consortium talking to the administrators. There are a lot of questions still to be asked. I'm not sure it would be helpful to anyone to hold out too many hopes," the source said.
"If it comes off it would be great but it is not immediately obvious that there is somebody big enough riding to the rescue."
