Tesco sees Christmas sales soar

I keep old posts on the site because I often enjoy reading old content on other people's sites. Not everything that is old is bad. It can be interesting to see how views have changed over time: for example, how my strident teenage views have mellowed and matured.

But given the age of this post, please bear in mind:

  • My views might very well have changed in the 13 years since I wrote this post. I have written some very silly things over the years, many of which I find pretty embarrassing today.
  • This post might use language in ways which I would now consider highly inappropriate or offensive.
  • Factual information might be outdated.
  • Links might be broken; embedded material might not appear properly.

Okay. Consider yourself duly warned. Read on...

Tesco sees Christmas sales soar (Guardian)

As a Tesco convert, this doesn’t surprise me. The shop far outperforms its main competitors, simply because it has low prices (unlike Sainsburys) without seeming ‘cheap’ (like Adsa and Morrisons). It’s a pleasant place to shop, with wide easy-to-navigate aisles, and is generally very well stocked. It doesn’t have ‘special offer’ stock dumped all over the middles of aisles, and it doesn’t make you feel claustrophobic thanks to high ceilings and good lighting. It’s also open 24hrs, which can be very useful, and almost every store also has a petrol station. There are very few circumstances under which I shop at other supermarkets, because Tesco is easy and relatively stress-free. Which is why it’s performing well.
