Tesco has signed a deal to trial a Next clothing concession in one of its supermarkets.
Several of the ‘Big Four’ grocers are housing different high-street brands within their larger stores as the switch to online and more convenience food shopping reduces demand for large supermarkets.
Next will take 4,300 square feet of space in the Tesco Extra store in Surrey Quays. The move comes after Tesco struck similar third-party deals with Dixons Carphone, Holland and Barrett, and Sir Philip Green’s Arcadia Group.
Habitat opened four more concessions in Sainsbury's in recent months after a trial of six "mini-stores" throughout the UK.
