Tesco - Every Little Helps or so they say. I seem to spend a load in there every time, but am sometimes disappointed in the value I am really getting. I like the fact I can park right outside, and browse at my leisure a huge variety of products. We have a new superstore nearby, and I do mostly have a reasonably good experience there. We had a small Tesco express until recently. If you bought a sandwich early am you had to pay for it by one of those awful automated machines. Personally, I prefer to have a human take my money and feel those machines are awful. One day I was told I had to use the automatic payment machine and I could not buy my sandwich at the tobacco kiosk (even though the lady was not serving anyone) neither could I queue up at the one open "manned" till because that was for people with trolleys. Needless to say, I left my sandwich inside Tesco and went elsewhere.
I do a lot of my shopping with TEsco online. I find this service mainly good, but sometimes the packing leaves a lot to be desired. Sometimes there are a lot of products out of stock too and no substitution made or offered. I like the prices in Tesco but I do think you get what you pay for. I like and use quite a few Value products. Tesco Finest flowers are great quality as are many of the finest products.
Summary: Like it but dont love it.
