Tesco Extra

Tesco is the UK’s biggest supermarket and even the country’s overall biggest retailer. They have outlets in every sizable settlement of the UK, and have dozens of branches in every major city.

They have different types of stores depending on the space available – the biggest stores are Tesco Extra, the normal, traditional ones are just Tesco, the medium sized ones are Tesco Metro and the smallest ones are Tesco Express which is little more than a convenience store.

Gone are the days when supermarkets only sell food – Tesco Extra is essentially a fully fledged department store.

To the public eye, Tesco operates in close competition with Adsa, Sainsbury’s and to a lesser extent Morrisons, Aldi, Lidl and John Lewis.

But to many it seems the supermarkets are an oligopoly, selling so many identical products just in different packages, and fixing prices at a rate that beats the smaller independent stores but still leaves plenty of room for profit to the supermarkets. This oligopolistic price-fixing can be likened to the major political parties in the UK which act like they’re in heated competition but in the thick of things actually have the same agenda and the same policies on the things that really affect the way the world is treated.

Still, irrespective of corruption behind the scenes, the fact remains Tesco and its closest rivals all provide an excellent product range and have their stores in convenient locations to ensure consumers are generally very happy with their daily & weekly shopping chores. Good job Tesco.
