    TESCOs are the cheapest department stores in the city.
    Do NOT make departments plural.
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.

    Re: Grammar point

    Tesco is the cheapest supermarket in the city (except for Aldi, Lidl, Asda and Netto).

    Please reread this, diplomacy:

    Thread titles should include all or part of the word/phrase being discussed.
