Lucgeo as part of the cost of living crisis they were doing it for quite a few weeks.

The comms were something to do with increased store canteen budget to help colleagues eat and keep up hygiene.

There were specific things on the list to pick, such as Tesco own cup a soups and mug shot noodles etc, then cereal and fruit, with pads in the ladies, and spray in both.

Stores can purchase different items instead though if need be but should be making sure there's a selection.

Was due to end by Christmas I think? But been extended past January I believe.

Tesco under fire for Trigo powered London checkout free store

QuoteTesco did not respond to our request for comment.

Understandable, they would not want to advertise that some members of the public are not allowed in their store, are they not supposed to be all things to all people(customers).

"It's what the customers want" seems to be the answer for every bad initiative they create. Be honest...it's what the shareholders want! Lower wage budget, bigger profits and bigger bonuses for those who push it through, regardless!

I was ridiculed in the past by a minority on this site, when I expressed my concern that Tesco were moving into a customer membership only club, when they started offering lower prices and offers to clubcard members only, wanting to sell your data on whilst keeping a big brother eye on everyone's shopping habits, so the clubcard membership is vital in gaining this!
Not long after this initiative came the changes in clubcard offers and T&C's, to the detriment of their customers with less offers and less partner discounts!
They want everyone in the club, everyone to be online, scanning vouchers etc...and yet, with the exception of dot.com, they no longer have a website for selling their other goods, you have to go into store  ??? Could it be it's a grey area to only offer discount to clubcard members online and full price to non members   ???

Can you imagine going into a pub and being refused a drink because you may not go in there again, strange ideas some people have.

Tesco shopper says 'he won't go back' after going to Marks and Spencer with just £16

QuoteIt left me certain of one thing - I wouldn't be returning to Tesco for a while.

M&S has recently impressed shoppers with prices lower than budget rival Aldi on some products. In a taste test, we discovered that the quality of M&S is largely more superior than many of its supermarket rivals.

"more superior"?  Something is either superior or it is not.

As recession bites, Tesco offers UK staff pay advance

QuoteUnder Tesco's new scheme, 280,000 of its workers will be able to receive up to 25% of their contractual pay early if they pay a small fee.

Spot the difference.

QuoteRetailer John Lewis Partnership said in September it would pay a one-off bonus of 500 pounds ($595) for full-time employees, while Marks & Spencer is offering an annual raise of 7.4%, a 250 pound voucher and benefits including free food and sanitary products.

Company, I work for now gave us all £200 pound back in September and another £200 is due in December for cost of living, management have also agreed to pay the December one at the start of the month, so people have it ready for Christmas, the September payment was made on the final Friday of the month.

Not sure how the Tesco get paid early scheme will help that much, might be useful for an unforeseen bill or emergency but then come the end of the month you're missing up to 25 percent of your usual pay and one imagines it will be easy to get into a vicious cycle of having to use the advance system every month.
Do not let anyone tell you there is not a decent job and life beyond Tesco.

chris9997

This is not really helpful,as as people say you will be that much short come payday.
However one way staff can use this is to pick up overtime and an advance to the total of the overtime that way pay will be mostly untouched.

Hammer10

If they want to help give us a Xmas bonus it's not like they can't afford it. Stupid idea that pay advance. Also by a bonus not just 20 pounds in vouchers a few hundred will help.

barafear

The £20 in vouchers was dropped s couple of years ago. Our "bonus" is the 20% colleague discount for 7 days (compared to our standard 15% for 4days)

Tesco look after their staff

NightAndDay

It's a very clever if somewhat, ethically questionable move from Tesco, people on less than £30k a year living in the South of the UK will either have to live an extremely modest lifestyle to not need an advance on their wages (assuming they're renting on their own or somehow paying a mortgage, though for people on that salary to be paying a mortgage on a property down south, they must have either bought 30+ years ago when housing was affordable or got help from the bank of mum and dad/inheritance, regardless, with mortgage rates going up, it will probably apply to them as well) or be living up north where you can live like a king on the living wage.

The 1.5% fee as well is also a bit underhand, Tesco should really be upping pay and the big retailers really should be setting an example and leading the way with a South of the UK premium, £15 an hour down south has the same PPP as £10 an hour up north.

You only got like £13 something for using the £20 so it was severely c**p, better with the 20% but not like they can't pay out a bonus or give us a better wage they just don't want to to be honest.. Would be better to give us a gift card so everyone benefits.

Bit late to the game as usual but now we're limiting eggs to 3 per customer? Heard it's a mix of bird flu and supermarkets not paying enough to egg farmers?

oldfashionedplayer

aue farmers are calling out supermarkets on tiktok, saying that prices increased by like 45-50p to cover the costs, but then supermarkets won't pay the extra to the farmers, farmers don't have an issue with their supply as they have to deal with bird flu every year anyhow.. it's supermarket greed that's screwing them..

One of the them posted a few tiktok's about it due to his interviews being cut for bbc etc to say that it's down to bird flu.. whilst he's just sat on thousands of eggs that supermarkets won't pass on the costs to the farmers that they are selling at, so just making a much larger profit when they sell but farmers making c**p still.

londoner83

Isn't the issue that with grain and electric prices going thru the roof it's simply loss leading for farmers to sell eggs at their current prices.

So we either have no eggs on sale as very few farmers will operate at a loss or we raise prices sufficiently to give the farmers a small profit when they produce them.

Am sure even if box of 6 eggs cost £5 people would still buy them.

Nothing on this thread yet about the alleged activities of a dot com driver in Watford?

If she's psychic to know he only tried to kiss her because she's foreign and of Latino descent, she surely would of been psychic enough to not answer the door again, obviously inappropriate, but to suggest he only did it because she's foreign is a bit much.
