Tesco moves ‘click & collect’ into schools

Tesco moves ‘click & collect’ into schools

British hypermarket chain Tesco has started to offer ‘click & collect’ at schools. Parents who drop off their children at school every day now can use that same trip for another purpose. The chain is currently trying out the project in York, but will add London and Dingwall (Scotland) before Christmas.

Libraries, schools and sports centres

Collecting your groceries will not only be possible in schools, but also in libraries, sports centres and other public areas. A press release states that it is the first time Tesco offers this service outside of its own stores. Tesco reaffirms its desire to make shopping as easy as possible.

 

“We think customers are really going to like the extension to the service because it makes things even more convenient for them and it means they can fit their shopping in around their lifestyles”, Simon Belsham, Tesco.com’s managing director, said.
