Tesco says it's to close three supermarkets in Wales at Wrexham, Caerphilly and Tredegar. It says around 135 jobs will be lost.
A spokesperson told ITV Cymru Wales that 65 jobs would go at the Dodds Lane store in Wrexham and the other 70 in the two Valleys stores.
Earlier this month Tesco announced 43 stores around the UK were facing closure due to not being profitable. The retailer's sales have fallen. Head office jobs will also see cuts as Tesco cuts overheads by 30%.
It is with great sadness that I have to tell you that, Wrexham Dodds Lane Superstore, Caerphilly Metro and Tredegar Express are amongst the 43 we plan to close. The decision to close the stores has been exceptionally difficult to take. I recognise it will affect many hard working colleagues, our customers and the local community.
Labour have responded to Plaid Cymru's 'Vote Green' call by accusing the party of arrogance and failing to stand up for Wales. The party's issued a statement from its candidate in Carmarthen East and Dinefwr criticising Lord Wigley's comments.
The latest Welsh poll shows that this election is a race between Labour and the Tories with just one in ten people in wales considering supporting Plaid.
Rather than arrogantly telling people in England who they should vote for, Plaid politicians would do well to focus - as Welsh Labour are - on standing up for Wales against the Tory-led UK government.

The Green Party leader in Wales has welcomed Plaid Cymru's call for Welsh voters in England to consider voting Green. Plaid's Election co-ordinator Dafydd Wigley says the two parties share values and aims and would work together in parliament in parliament to try to force concessions from whichever party or parties form the UK Government. You can see Lord Wigley's comments by clicking here.
He's also said that he's not expecting Greens in Wales to return the favour and vote Plaid, although he'd like them to consider the option. The leader of the Wales Green Party, Pippa Bartolotti, says voters in Wales and England are looking for a change.
I’ve a great deal of time for Dafydd Wigley. He’s telling people to vote Green because he knows that Green policies and Green politics are essential for this country to pull away from austerity and turn the agenda towards protecting and helping the next generation who will be trapped in an impoverished world of dwindling resources.
Support for the Green Party in Wales is growing at an unprecedented rate. Voters in both England and Wales know that Punch and Judy politics must be consigned to the dustbin of history, and we must quickly move to a more inclusive, more thoughtful and more progressive kind of politics where the needs of everyone are properly considered. That means no more politics for the vested interests of the few.

People from Wales living in England should think about voting for the Green Party in the General Election, according to the man in charge of Plaid Cymru's election campaign.
Lord Wigley says the two parties, along with the SNP share many of the same values and will work together after the election to win concessions from whichever party is in government.
He says he's not expecting Green supporters in Wales to vote Plaid (although he'd like them to consider it!) but he told our Political Editor Adrian Masters that it makes sense for Plaid-leaning voters living in England to lend their support to the Greens.
