I would just like to write on Tesco, based on some of the experiences that I have had of it over the past few years as a customer. Although you may not agree with everything that I have to say on them, this is the whole point of Ciao – to air ones own views, whilst still providing a reasonable account of the subject matter aswell.In writing this review, I intend to go about it in the following manner. First off, I shall give an explanation of the different forms of shop or store that Tesco currently provides. I shall then go on to give my general advantages and disadvantages of the company, finishing in conclusion with what I feel overall about them. Somewhere in amongst it all, I shall also try to explain some of the other services that Tesco offers.
Just a little background, to say that Tesco is one of the four largest supermarket chains in this country – with Asda (owned by Wal-Mart); Sainsbury's, and Morrisons (who now own the Safeway chain). I hope to cover as much as I possibly can during the course of this review, but if there is something that I have missed out on then please do let me know. So here goes!What different types of store does Tesco offer?
Tesco Express – this is more of a basic 'corner shop' style of store, normally found in high density inner city residential areas such as close to high levels of student populations (although this store won't be found actually in a city/ town centre). Only carrying the more basic items that you will need such as basic food items suitable for making the majority of meals; milk; snacks; drinks (both soft and alcoholic), and magazines. I mentioned that this is more of a corner shop style setup for that reason – inasmuch as you only would really frequent it if you ran out of something, or on your way home you are planning a small meal for yourself and need the ingredients for it. Opening hours will of course vary in these stores, according to locations.One Stop shops – similar to the above, these were bought out by Tesco but are the only Tesco stores not to have the company name in its title. No explanation needed, owing too its similarities to the above mentioned category.
Tesco Metro – normally found in the middle of a busy shopping centre in a large town, this store would carry all of the above plus would carry a small amount of 'other items' such as stationary; cards, and seasonal goods at the right times. Again, opening hours will of course vary from location to location so always check out your local one by the telephone (or online) before venturing out.Tesco Homeplus – a warehouse style shop, selling non-food items. At present, there are only a small number of these currently in existence in the country although there are plans afoot to create more in the future.
Tesco Extra/ those other out of town supermarkets/ superstores of similar descriptions, but are just called normal 'Tesco'! These stores are normally found anywhere outside of the main town/ city, normally out past the residential suburbs.
