I like Tesco stores, they have a wide range of products, prices are competitive, parking is convenient, staff are helpful and I do not mind that they are dominant in their industry, why would I criticize them for being successful?
I hear a lot of people complain about Tesco, but there are still queues at the che

Fun biased and personal review of our nearby stores. I too like Tesco but have lots more favourites:

Co-operative (big store). Best stock in the area and much smaller than the big boys. Best green veg. Best sausages range. Best salad. Pleasant staff. Quickest for a full shopping list. Close at 20:00.

Co-operative (little store) (3 of). Good stock....

Last word should read checkout.

I do not work for Tesco and do not own any of their shares.
And they are open 24hours.
I agree Tony. I always find the staff there very helpful. I was overcharged for something the other day, and they gave me double the difference back!
But you're meant to be outraged at them, the Mail said so.
I've stopped using Tesco a few weeks ago after having been a customer for about 15 years.
They stopped stocking some of my favourite items in an effort to push their own brands, and their prices have increased over the past few months by about 7% on a weeks groceries.
I now use Waitrose whose own brands are much nicer than Tesco's, and although some products are slightly dearer this is offset by their delivery service being free.
Having said that I do still bank with Tesco as they offer a great deal on their savings accounts.
Oops! I didn't know that. Maybe I should start reading it. ;o)
I don't like tesco, nor would i shop there, we have a tesco express nearby and still hate going in there, if only for a paper.
My last was to Chuck.
I liked Tesco but their prices have increased considerably and their 'big price drop' is a misnomer. I still shop at Tesco but am buying more elsewhere.
i like my local express, the staff are great when i routinely forget something on a sat morning they usually remember
Success of a particular company can be detrimental to the consumer. In Tesco's case it is often the number of stores they want to set up everywhere that causes local concern. I'm unsure the amout of trade they get is a good reflection of the issues some folk have with them.
I buy most of my meat, vegetables and fresh foods from the farm shops, etc, but Tesco is fine for everything else. Prices have gone up - but I don't think that's confined to Tesco.
Here here Tony I get fed up with people having a go at Tesco; they are no worse than any other supermarket for the prices they charge anyway and since when are they not allowed to make a profit.
Sorry, I wish I could afford the prices some of the local shops charge but unfortunately Tesco always comes up better value. I love all the big supermarkets for choice, price and quality and always use them.
Oh dear, Daily Mail been having a pop at success again have they?

I understand from those who go more often than I do that they do run out of some items very easily and that they are trying to push their own brands which may be as good, and might be cheaper, than some well known brands.

Was not aware price increase of 7%.

Why do you hate to go EM10?
Tesco is not nearly as inexpensive as it would like you to think it is.
We shop at Waitrose, Lidl, Aldi and anywhere else that has what we want.
As I mentioned in a previous post, I'll never again shop in Tesco. Don't want to go into it all again as I feel I nearly started WW3 - personal decision.
Oo-er! What did you do Maggie?

Maggiebee, read your last post.
TW, our local express is staffed by people who don't know the meaning of the word customer, let alone service, many, sorry aware what this sounds like, can hardly be understood, and so i would only go in if desperate, or need a paper. I don't even shop locally any more, as all our nice shops have gone, replaced with corner stores, which have a huge mark up on goods. So when able, shuffle up to sainsburys, the choice is good, staff ok, and usually can get what's needed, plus the market is just nearby for fruit and veg. I don't like the fact that Tesco has such a hold on our shopping habits, it's not just food any more but everything else, often to the detriment of the smaller outlets.
Each to his own Tony, always down to personal choice.
