Tesco used to be the only place to go but now should be the last on your list. A littany of stupid company policies implemented by stalwarts of the jobs-worth-or-be-damned mentality. I fear their days of success are over as they career toward the end of their usefulness.
AVOID TESCO OPTICIANS unless you want cheap rubbish that can SERIOUSLY damage your eye-sight. And I have letters from Tesco managers admitting failures that include wrong prescriptions, wrong diagnosis and they could not care-less.
It would be laughable if it was not a tragic flaw. The fact their SENIOR MANAGER's cannot string a sentence together or understand simple grammar causes me to fear my own status as a grammar Nazi. Anyone who would like to check that search for "tesco opticians failing support" and you will find I am not alone.
The stores are no longer the friendly face of grocery shopping, they squeeze us altogether in ever smaller parking bays, lie about price reductions, illegally record PIN and other personal data and then wonder why their own checkout-operators frustration is the single most complained about issue on the shop floor.
Replace the senior managment with drunk monkey's and no one would notice until pay-day. They are a group of high paid postering goofs all circling the drain like spare pricks at an orgy. You can't talk to them as they are protected by a layer of "complaints executives" incapable of getting beyond the "clues are important" stage.
It's the dialog of the deaf with no sign language apart from posing.
They used to care.
£1.69 for one, or £1.99 for two etc. Shut up, why not just be 99p I only want one.
They have been allowed to grow way too big.
Only gets a second star for selling petrol and putting pressure on the likes of BP where we all get ripped off too.

The man name is Mr Venon who is the duty manager. Even he can't understand what the customer service is , I do not know how he became as a duty manager, the rudest staff ,I 've ever seen. If Any chance to go to Leyton Baker Arms Tesco, Avoid him. Very rude.
Tesco give us value for money as long as you are on the alert when shopping.
In store prices seem to be confusing and as long as I have my glasses on I will find the bargins.
Bigger is not always better value.
pay attention and you can get real bargins
The range of products has always been good compared to other supermarkets.Average fruit and vegetable section not as good as Morrisons.Very good wine section.
They are let down by careless home delivery staff who clog the aisles with large trolleys chatting and poor responses to comments.
Had issues placing my order initially (it vanished and i missed my delivery spot) but once i got a bit more aquainted with the site i found it easy and useful. Saved me a fortune compared to walking round the store! showed me some offers i would have otherwise missed and the little delivery chap was hugely helpful and friendly and it was POURING when he arrived. All in all a great service and i will be using it again!
A Company that is slowly turning our world into a giant Teso, with its constant need to ruin other smaller, local shops and businesses there seems to be no end to there selfish ways. Only interested in making a buck and deciding where to strike next, whilst smoking on a Gurkha Black Dragon cigar no doubt.
I have my groceries delivered by Tesco and you couldn't want a better bunch of friendly and helpful guys. Shame the rest of the company isn't like that. I actually feel sorry when I ring Dundee to complain, which is at least once a month and could be more if I really could be bothered, because I'm sure they have the worst job in British industry.
Every week there are cock-ups. They run out of stuff all the time, especially stuff on special offer, and they don't use their heads when it comes to substitutions. It is particularly irritating for me since I have been housebound for the past five months, and it seems impossible for them to understand that, say, a loaf of bread with a two-day life is not much use to me when I can't get out to buy more.
The world's third largest retailer must be able to do better than this.
I have been a big Tesco consumer but recent experience with there credit card has changed my mind, i was forced to have a low limit (7.5 x less then i was offered with my bank) but because of double club card points i took out the card. i kept being charged fee's i could do nothing about that more then cancelled out the fees, trying to phone them was a nightmare as they seem to share lines with Little woods... go figure. Rubish, won't be re-insuring my car with them out of principle and shop there rarely now (before i spen approx £150 a week + £50-£60 on fuel). your loss Tesco.
USED THEM RECENTLY ONLINE FOR GROCERIES. SEVERAL OF THE SO CALLED FRESH FRUIT WERE MOULDY. ROTTEN OR LOOKED VERY SAD. COMPLAINED TO CUSTOMER SERVICE AND WANTED REFUND AND WRITTEN REPLY ALL IVE HAD SO FAR IS EMAILSAYING VERY BUSY AND TELLING ME TO CALL THEM. NEVER HAVE LIKED THEM. NOW I KNOW WHY. WAITROSE AND SAINSBURY STREETS AHEAD.
Very little in the way of problems, but a reliable service with regular food home deliveries.
Quite competitive pricing against their competitors which are close by but Tesco always have a great deal of choice where the other local stores fail.
I LOATHE SHOPPING.
I love all the delivery men from Tesco's - they are the best.
Its fun shopping online, you save petrol, footwear, energy, it arrives at your convenience
-a fantastic service.
I couldn't have done without it when I was looking after my father and mother in their last days on earth, and now they are gone I shall continue to have my shopping delivered. I am so spoilt.
