WOW! What a shocker! Tesco Direct is to be no-more. The Online Store owned by Tesco, is to cease trading on 9th July 2018. The shock announcement comes after a review of the non-food trader.
Unfortunately, the closure of Tesco Direct will result in the risk of 500 workers losing their jobs.
Will this affect Tesco Groceries? It's looking like Groceries and Non-Food Products will be available eventually from one online platform. Tesco Groceries will remain unchanged at present.
Here's the official statement from Charles Wilson, Tesco’s UK and Ireland Boss: "We want to offer our customers the ability to buy groceries and non-food products in one place and that’s why we are focusing our investment into one online platform. ‘This decision has been a very difficult one to make, but it is an essential step towards establishing a more sustainable non-food offer and growing our business for the future."
What does this mean for ongoing orders? Orders may take 2-5 days now, and further delays may occur, but you will be notified if this is the case, by Customer Service.
