Jack's was founded in 2018 by Tesco as a discount chain to rival stores such as Lidl and Aldi. It is named after the Tesco founder, Jack Cohen. The company opened its first stores in Chatteris, Cambridgeshire and Immingham, Lincolnshire on 20 September 2018. They now operate ten stores across the UK. From May 2019, selected products from Jack's stores will be made available in Tesco stores for the first time.
The store's locations at St Helens, Edge Hill, Walton, Rubery, and Castle Bromwich all previously traded as Tesco Metro stores prior to being converted to the Jack's. Middlewich and Rawtenstall stores previously traded as Tesco superstores before being converted to Jack's. Chatteris and Immingham were built as Tesco superstores which never opened, instead they were subdivided with Jack's taking approximately half the space, the rest being let to other retailers. Barnsley was a new build, built specifically as a Jack's store and located in the car park of the town's Tesco superstore.
