Tesco heads back to the United States

Tesco heads back to the United States

A year after it had fully withdrawn from the United States, British Tesco heads back across the pond. This time around, it will open several F&F clothing stores on the United States East Coast.

Back within a year

The very first F&F store will open in May in Boston, with stores planned for New York, Virginia and Maryland. In total, seven stores have been confirmed for the initial phase.

 

F&F currently has 43 franchise stores in 10 countries, but the chain intends on expanding into several new markets. Tesco will collaborate with a franchise partner in the United States as well, namely Retail Group of America.

 

Tesco had sold its American Fresh & Easy formula less than a year ago, after a 6-year stint trying to break into the American market. The company is the world's third largest retail, trailing Walmart and Carrefour.
