Tesco - TSCO - Share Chat

Latest trading update from tesco article from sharecast.

If you want a foreign company to compare Tesco to it’d be Carrefour or Auchan.

I have a larger Tesco that I frequen and the feel isn’t too far off the Carrefour hypermarkets in both France and Romania.

Yes the hypermarket does more non food related stuff then a large Tesco but the feel of a large box box Tesco store feels the closest thing you’d ever get to a continental European hypermarket while still being in the UK.

Franprix, Monoprix and/or Leaderprice are not too far behind also

French Carrefour and Tesco play in 2 totally different worlds haha. One serves real good groceries, the other one is Tesco :grinning:

Every little helps!

Agreed the produce in France and Spain is better than Tesco or indeed most supermarkets in the UK.

I was perhaps speaking of the ambiance of the big box Tesco stores, perhaps my one feels like the closest thing to a continental style hypermarket. Perhaps it’s just me, who knows.

Im not do sure the produce is better as a product when comes from the field. We probably lose a day or more to get it in to the depot. Dates to me seem to be shorter since we left the EU. Just as a car travelling the border checks on passports seems longer so can only imagine the checks a lorry has.

My experience in Europe, mainly Croatia is that the produce is displayed better. Possibly due to that there doesn’t seem to be as much processed food like tins/frozen/ready meals. Most people seem to be cooking from ingredients still.

Given the reputation of Paperchase (Didnt pay it’s freelance designers)

Are those designers likely to want to do more business with tesco, knowing they’ll get squeezed even further…
so will the Paperchase name just be slapped on any ole paper based goods with a dive to the bottom (of prices and quality)
