Tesco’s food counter closure shows end is nigh for this unconvincing theatre

Quote
Tesco’s latest closure of 317 staffed counters is just another sign that this unconvincing form of retail theatre has passed its ‘best before’ date.

Despite the pork pie hats and the uniforms that would seem to suggest a curated, specialist small shop offer, UK supermarket deli, fish, and butcher counters haven’t cut the mustard. Latest IGD figures show just 6% of shoppers use them. No wonder.

It is understood the incident happened shortly before 8.30pm, with fire crews and officers from Greater Manchester Police called to the scene. No other vehicles were involved.

Greenpeace highlight Tesco’s failure to keep its climate promises with protest outside their Clapham South store

Tesco is buying meat from one of the world’s worst climate criminals which makes its claims to be serious about tackling the climate crisis seem very hypocritical.

Tesco’s eco pledge ‘falls short’ as expose reveals ‘messy reality’ of plastic waste

Quote
The third tracker stopped working shortly after arriving at Eurokey and was assumed lost. Two months later, the final digital tracker came back to life at an industrial estate in southern Turkey, roughly 2,000 miles from the start of its journey.

The Turkish company denied accepting imported waste, leading Bloomberg to question whether it was authorised to process the material at all.

^ My, how times have changed at Tesco...

In the recessionary era of the early 1980's, Tesco launched Checkout '82 - prices on 1,500 key lines were cut between 3% and 26% and Tesco sales soared to £2bn. Tesco understood customers and put them at the heart of what it was doing, so Tesco led.

In the recessionary era of the early 1990's, Tesco launched the Value range. Using basic red, white and blue packaging to hammer home the no-frills message, it had the desired effect and the range would become a billion-pound brand leading to the infamous 'baked bean wars' when beans at Tesco fell to 3p for a tin. Tesco understood customers and put them at the heart of what it was doing, so Tesco led.

In the recessionary era of the financial crisis, in 2007 Tesco invested £80M to cut the price of 600 of its own-brand everyday items by as much as 30%, igniting a price war among the big retailers and leading to the Price Comparison craze. Tesco understood customers and put them at the heart of what it was doing, so Tesco led.

In the midst of a cost of living crisis in 2022, Tesco's Chairman tells us to put our bread in the fridge(!) and offers prices the same as Sainsbury's if you have a Clubcard and prices the same as Waitrose if you don't. Meanwhile, profits increase to being 38% lower than they were 11 years ago...

Meeting now in aisle 14: Tesco pilots in-store flexible office space

Quote
Client meetings and emails could be picked up alongside a pint of milk and a box of eggs under a new deal between Tesco and flexible office operator IWG.

From later this month, the owner of office operator Regus is to test out a 3,800 sq ft flexible working area within Tesco’s New Malden supermarket, with room for 12 private desks, 30 co-working spaces and a meeting room.

Might shame Tesco into updating their own antiquated IT systems!

See how long it takes the SM into trying to get them to rumble their area ???
Will they be cleaning as they go :o

Can’t see a firm being happy hearing red calls every few minutes during their meetings either  :-X

Someone at head office was hitting the crack pipe when they thought of this.

1.For one, many office workers, if allowed would prefer to work from home, meaning they wouldn't utilise this.

2. Those that are mandated to work full time in the office are likely prohibited from working elsewhere.

3. The overwhelming majority of people who are hybrid workers will likely work either at home or at their office. The few that (for whatever reason) chooses to work in an office space provided by someone (so they pay them to work... ok) in all likelihood would choose to work somewhere that's got things like a mini-bar, a gym or nice scenery. You've got to be a special brand of turnip to choose to work in one of Tescos office spaces  :D :D :D.

In return for office space , people using it will have to stack shelves for for an hour or two.

What a silly idea. I can barely think as it is with all the screaming kids, EAS gate alarms and tannoy calls, not least the incessant checkout red calls, pity those who think they can used flexible office space. Clearly another hair-brained idea from somebody who hasn't worked in a store much.
