Tesco will debut its U.S. grocery stores on Wednesday to a select group of local officials, though activists skeptical of the British retailer's promise to bring wholesome foods to overlooked neighborhoods have pledged to challenge the company. Activists are doubtful about its promises to create good jobs and environmentally friendly stores in neighborhoods that have been ignored by traditional grocers and aim to strike a binding agreement with Tesco that would insure that local residents share in the benefits of its stores.
