But it is also for online orders.
To enable me to find prices in Tesco that might possibly compete with those in Aldi or Lidl I have to download the Clubcard app or log into the website?
Why would I bother?
I clearly didn't read it properly first thing this morning ! :rotfl::rotfl:
Thank you, i feel better now
We do not have a Jacks store anywhere near here, and the Tesco I went to has a Lidl next door so I can kind of understand why they're trying this, but...
1) It's confusing. All these Jacks items were together on one aisle. The other things on that aisle were gardening items, outdoor toys and a few reduced non-food odds and ends.So if you wanted crisps or lemonade you would not find the Jacks versions because they weren't on the crisp/fizzy drink aisles.
2) It's confusing. Tesco used to have three own brands - value, normal and finest. Then they replaced value with a load of made up brand names. They also seem to have introduced some fake brand names for standard items. Now they have the Jacks brand in the mix too. It's much more confusing than Lidl where there is usually just one version of each product, occasionally two versions.
I don't go to Tesco often these days, but every time I do I come away wondering what exactly their strategy is.
I've seen this too - Jack's isn't, I hear, going too well for them. Maybe they're having to shift some of the Jack's branded stuff into the main stores to get rid of it!
I suspect this little venture will soon go the way of the Sainsbury's Netto gamble.
You can't out-Aldi Aldi! Or Lidl.
Yes - my Tesco also has an aisle they call The Market (or something similar) which has a random selection of non-food items. I suspect they're trying to imitate the middle aisle of Aldi/Lidl and at the same time shift a load of non food that's left in their warehouses after they closed the Tesco Direct website down. But unlike Aldi/Lidl it's not a good selection and there are no particular bargains.
It is fair to say that this Tesco is next door to a Lidl which opened last year. Since Lidl opened, Tesco has not been as busy. I guess they have to try different things, but for me Lidl is not just about lower prices. The store seems cleaner, easier to navigate and despite only having a few checkouts compared to Tesco has shorter queues. I suspect that if the pricing structure was reversed, i.e. Tesco became the cheaper of the two, I would still shop at Lidl because I prefer the store and range to Tesco.
A much better creative effort than Tesco's; if it were a war of image then Sainsbos would win hands down.
