Tesco has said it will shut counters and hot delis in an overhaul that will impact around 2,100 jobs.
The UK’s largest supermarket chain has also announced that it will be reducing the number of lead and team managers as part of a shake-up of huge overhaul.
Tesco’s remaining counters and hot delis at stores will close for a final time on February 26, having earlier removed counters from the majority of its stores.
Around 350 workers are expected to be affected by a series of localised changes, such as the closure of eight pharmacies and reduced hours at some in-store post offices.

The retailer says all all affected workers will be offered alternative roles, though it did not say how many staff work on counters and delis.
Meanwhile, Tesco says the shake-up of management roles will introduce around 1,800 new shift leader roles in stores, leading operational duties on the shop floor.
Jason Tarry, Tesco UK and Ireland chief executive officer, said: ‘These are difficult decisions to make, but they are necessary to ensure we remain focused on delivering value for our customers wherever we can, as well as ensuring our store offer reflects what our customers value the most.
‘Our priority is to support those colleagues impacted and help find alternative roles within our business from the vacancies and newly created roles we have available.’
