Karama 'Tesco' to change name if UK chain takes legal action
Tesco's UK press office says unaware about Dubai store
Barring the similarity in name, the supermarket, which is located diagonally opposite Woodlands restaurant in Karama, has no legitimate link with the UK retailer.
When Emirates 24|7 contacted Tesco's UK press office they claimed they were unaware of this Dubai store.
The store manager of the supermarket claimed ignorance about the existence of the UK store.
In fact, he admitted that they would change the name of their store if the UK team decided to slam a copyright infringement case on them.
Earlier, a similar case of copyright infringement was reported when a supermarket with the same name, and no link to the original UK store, was spotted.
Soon after, the chain rebranded as Jesco.
