Young Tesco super-fan given supermarket uniform and chance to work on checkouts

By Fiona Jackson & Lisa Hodge

A four-year-old Tesco super-fan had her dreams come true when she worked a two hour shift on the checkout.

Brooke Goacher is obsessed with the supermarket chain - so after daily trips to the store at her request, her mum Jodie Buckley, 28 decided to ask if she could get her a custom uniform for Christmas.

Jodie contacted a store worker to see if they could make a uniform for her in her size - and she received a tiny blue shirt and jumper last month.

The youngster was also allowed to 'work' a shift on a Sunday morning at the Tesco in Carlton, Nottingham - and spent two whole hours serving customers.

Jodie, from Hucknall, said: "She was so excited, she mentioned it every morning and she said 'Mummy, is it my day to go to work?

"She went on the tills, Checkout 4 - it's got to be Checkout 4, I don't know why!"

Her time on the till was a dream come true and she has confirmed to her family she wants to work in Tesco when she grows up.

Jodie said: "We were sat there with her brother and sister, just saying 'what would you like to be when you're older?'

"She just came out with 'I want to work at Tesco!'

"From there it's become an obsession - we'll say 'would you like to go anywhere?' and she'll say 'can we just go to Tesco?'

"We just end up driving around the different Tesco's, I've taken her to about five.

"I've taken her to M&S and Sainsbury's too but they're not the same."

The mum-of-three says after collecting Brooke and her two siblings Layla, seven, and Jack, five - the Tesco-daft youngster will immediately ask if they can pop to the shop.

Jodie said: "People keep saying it's because you buy her things, but we'll just go in and get bread and milk.

"She just loves it, I do not know what the obsessions is."

She even bought her a Tesco till for her fourth birthday to practice on.

In December, Jodie posted on Facebook asking if anyone knew of a way she could get hold of a child-sized Tesco uniform.

A member of staff from the Tesco in Carlton reached out to help and a few days later an iconic blue polo and jumper had been made specifically for the tot.

Jodie said: "We wrapped it up for her and she opened it on Christmas morning.

"It made her Christmas!

"It was like pure excitement, 'do I get to work at Tesco?' she kept saying.

"Times are hard and there's a lot of doom and gloom but people still go out there and try and help you."
