According to Guardian News Philip Clarke, the managing director of TESCO, admitted that supermarket shoppers are falling out of love of going to supermarkets and buying things from stores like TESCO. He said, “Now buyers prefer to go online and buy things from online stores.” He was of this view that TESCO is losing a huge number of its clients because of the exceeding increase of online shopping.” He admitted that now shopper has more online options and because of the time constraints and easy access to all kind of goods online, it is becoming a losing battle to keep the customers interested in coming to the stores and buying the grocery items from super market like TESCO.
With the evolution of online shopping and the benefits of being able to visit many stores without leaving the house and with the availability of Wi-Fi everywhere, online shopping trend is setting in and instead of going to a supermarket and trying to find the appropriate things from a big store like TESCO, super store shoppers are now opting out for a better solution and moving towards online shopping from countless websites. These online stores are designed to be user friendly and have detailed catalogues with all product range item wise arranged for every customer.
Many of these websites work in collaboration with different stores and different kinds of products are available on the websites. Any customers can plan a full shopping trip and shop for hours and the beauty is that he or she does not have to leave home for it. They can order furniture as well as eggs and bread from the website and these online stores ensure home delivery in record time. Some of the customers submit their monthly grocery list and their items are delivered to their door step on monthly basis. The payment schedule is also very easy and user friendly.
There are many stores which maintain an extensive product ranges such as unique dining tables, dining table and chairs, unique coffee tables like FurnitureInFashion and these stores work hard to provide the best customer support to the buyers. These stores provide an unmatched quality and for an online shopper, it is very important to order the thing and get it in the best form and most importantly at his desired time. There were many scams in the online business and still there can be some issues but these days, online shopping is becoming the norm and is very safe.
Stores provide the customer support and the required information with prompt answers and many sites have the customer support officially available 24 / 7. Philip Clarke said, “The customers are more inclined towards buying the food items from the local stores and they pick these items from convenience store on their way from work and order the rest of the things from online shopping websites where they have the option to order from furniture to milk carton and it usually takes one day to few days to deliver the item at the door step.”
TESCO is changing its expansion plan for most of its stores and many of its store sites will not be used for a store now. 40 of its store sites are on the market for sale. It is now not in the favour of the store to carry on with its plan of expansion and the new stores are becoming obsolete too. TESCO is working in partnership with Giraffe, a famous restaurant chain, and Harris + Hooles and its plan is to make the store a more family friendly place and use its cavernous store outlets for this purpose.
