Tesco in new online push

TESCO intensified its dotcom push yesterday by opening its fifth “dark store” near Crawley, West Sussex.

The dotcom store, which will create 700 jobs, will serve only online shoppers. The supermarket typically offers an instore pick-up service for its online customers, but is ramping up its dotcom store presence thanks to growing demand in and around London.
The Crawley branch follows other stores in the Home Counties in Enfield, Greenford, Aylesford and Croydon.
