Tesco aims to improve customer offering

Tesco is making progress in attempts to improve its offering for customers, it has been noted.
Philip Clarke, chief executive of the retail giant, said the group is pleased with its performance over the Christmas and New Year period, which serves as a reflection of its success as it attempts to place its shoppers first.
Mr Clarke stated: “This performance was driven by a further improvement in our food business in-store and a strong contribution from online, which included our biggest ever week for internet sales.”
The supermarket revealed the period also saw improvements in its Tesco Direct business and the introduction of its Christmas for Grocery Click and Collect.
Mr Clarke explained Tesco’s overall performance during the festive season was broadly in line with expectations, while successes in the UK helped to maintain trends at a time when trading conditions remained tough in regions such as Central Europe.
Sales at the supermarket are likely to have been helped by the popularity of its Italian sparkling wine Prosecco, which proved a big hit among shoppers in the run-up to Christmas.
