Tesco never stop to amaze

I like many people work in an office and need to buy formal clothes for work.

Normally somewhere like Next or M&S would be the shop i purchase trousers and shirts but the other day whilst walking round my local Tesco extra in Hertfordshire I was amazed at the mens formal clothes and I purchased one pair of trousers and a shirt.

Now normally a pair of trousers from next would set me back £34.99 upwards in Tesco £14.99 and the quality looks good.

A shirt was £8.99 instead of £24.99 and again good quality cotton. Also they had leather shoes from £14.99 (which i did not need)

I am certainly going to buy my work cloths from Tesco as the value is hard to beat.

The evil empire grows

Whats Wal*Mart got to do with this?:giggle:
#5
Tesco makes far more in the UK and greedily builds more stores stealing business away from local shops thats what I call an evil empire,and they arent happy with 20 billion and want more.

How greedy can you get!
#6
i think their prices are reasonable...cheaper than sainsburys

Theres an old saying.

"If you can't stand the heat, keep out of the kitchen":thumbsup:

Local shops, for local people, are too expensive, therefore its common sense not to buy from them.
#8
Thats not my point, where does the cut off point come, where I used to live there used to be loads of shops not even that expensive, and then a 24 hour Tesco's was built and now the high street is now over half empty and you have to travel to the outskirts of town to do your shopping which is terriblefor people without cars.

Same for a town about 10 miles away, a very small town with a tiny town centre anyway, a Tesco's is built then loads of shops are forced to closed.

I mean they are making huge profits anyway so why do they want more!
#9
if you built a money earner and it went well would you say, hold on, ive made enough now i'll stop?

and think of the jobs it generates
#10
Ry, check out a film called WAL-MART: The High Cost of Low Price:thumbsup:

They did exactly the same thing in the US, then bought Asda to continue over here:giggle:

And think about all the little people it hurts.

Family businesses being closed because they have been run into the ground.

Heck you are defending a company that pays employees minimum wage and treats staff like a drone.

Now yes a store like Tesco's is good for cheap shopping but I miss going into a town centre shop and talking to staff who knew me,and im still young! instead of a lot of faceless employees(some are great though) at Tesco's who sell generic food.

And I know of that Wal Mart film lol, saw a bit of it before where a black woman was discrimitated against for her race and being a woman.

But I like Asda at the minute, cheap(cheaper than Tesco's for the most part)
#12
I prefer Asda too, mostly because they dont put all those stupid BS price comparison ads on. Cheaper on X amount of items but a damn sight more expensive on another X amount. All in the prices are pretty even between Tesco/Asda but the Asda staff are nicer (had a blazing barney with a Tesco CS woman 4 years ago over illegal pricemarking and still not forgiven it). Tesco is goodif you want to scalp them with the XX vouchers though lol.

Regarding 'small' shops, unfortunately they can't afford to compete. The biggest problem is the wholesalers charge them about what Tesco etc charge US for their stock, therefore, after their markup they get priced out of the equation. Not a lot can be done about it i'm afraid.
#13
hey im not really defending it lol, im simply saying that theres 2 sides and who wouldnt if it makes money lol
#14
M&S is quality mate, you cant compare M&S to tesco get that fact right.

Anyway I always buy my suits and shirts from Crombie, very nice suits and they fit you very well

ewwwwwwww tesco suits
#15
I have decided in my own life to boycott tesco. Won't make a jot of difference but i feel better for it.
I know all other big chains are screwin over supplier's but they do seem to get the worst press.
The additive's in petrol, the denial did my 'ead in. I wasn't affected but the denial's were awful.
When they teamed up with RBS i think it is, and they launched the financial side, it seemed that they are taking over the world and no one wants a company to be that strong.
The smaller stores, whilst more expensive sometimes, you cannot beat personal service, product knowledge amongst other things.
The high street will no longer be very soon, just the largest of chains then cutting each other up, trying to be the monopolist and then, the choice has gone, and welcome to Teso Price Hike.......and now on some lighter news lol.....
[helper]#16
Their clothing is okay but (from personal experience) don't expect their shirts and trousers to last very long. Shirt collars fray very easily and quality checking is a bit ropey......whereas M & S and some Debenhams stuff last for ages.

The main reason I don't like Tesco very much is because on odd occasions I have been lied to by the customer services staff.

Yeah Tesco customer service is the worst! Still there sutis ewwwwwwwwwwwwwwww! even there clothing its gonna be such rubbish qual
#18
Lol, i remember my local store. I was in there, at the height of the one-in-front-open-another-til. I got to the front of the queue and without warning, she said to me as i placed the items on the belt, sorry closing :?.

I said, what about the one in front and she sorry, i'm closing more tersly. I said ok and left the items in the basket and walked off. She said, where you going, you cannot leave them there. I said, oh, i can and when you've had your much needed break you can put them all back for me, goodbye :)

I have not been in that store since even though it is five mins walk :giggle:
#19
Sounds like the sort of thing I do lol.

I feel that way about nestle.

The thing I really hate about supermarkets is the friut and veg. Rock hard fruit that just goes off with no warning and tastles veg.
Give me my local market anyday!!
#23
I love the way this has turned into a tesco bashing thread. The op was just commenting on how cheap the clothes are. And at the end of the day with them being that cheap, you dont mind replacing them.

I have always personaly found the quality of clothes in next to be shocking, and I would never buy clothing from there again.

And I don't know why you are all complaining about the attitude of staff in Tescos. I am always polite and coutrtious to the customers, as are near enough all of my work colleagues.

I personaly found the attitude of the staff in local shops to be alot worse, and most of the time what shuts them down is their attitude, and high prices of things.

There has been a sainsbury's in my village/town for well over 10 years now, and the shops in th village are still doing ok. As well as the sainsburys we have asda a mile away, and tesco 3 miles away.

Well if your market sells local or even ENGLISH veg its most definately in the minority.

Thats great if you have time to get to the market. But most people work when the markets are open. SO supermarkets fit in around peoples lives.
#26
Maybe we should do a supermarket league table, heres mine lol.

1: Asda
2: Morrisons
3: Aldi/Netto/Lidl
4: Tesco
5: Sainsbury
6: Somerfield

No M&S? Well its not really a supermarket is it? Waitrose? Wouldn't bother with it.

Just to add, even though Morrisons get 2nd place, its a shame they don't do more 'healthy' bogofs.

LOL my league table would the exactly the same as yours except maybe somerfield would be 5th and sainsburys 6th.

Never liked Tesco ever since the fuel fiasco and when they overcharged my old man for his grocerys, then there was the time when one of staff ignored me when I asked where the milk was, Almost wanted to hit the guy but it was fun reporting him to customer services :)

Do Somerfield still force you to sign up to their clubcard to get bogofs etc? Been years since I was last there, tried to buy something and when I couldn't produce a card they said I had to sign up, so I left everything on the checkout and walked pmsl. Why should somebody have to give their personal details to buy stuff from a supermarket? Maybe they've scrapped that stupid idea now?

Sainsbury. They rate low for me because their merchandising dept must be on drugs, the stores are just so badly laid out, its a nightmare to find anything. On the plus side they have just about anything you could want. I just prefer to go in, get what I want and leave though, so they lost points by delaying me by forcing me to walk aisles I had no intention of buying from lol.

Just to add, the foreign ones get the 3rd place because it's like rummaging through a boot fair, happy times:w00t:

"Tesco never cease to amaze " is the thread title, and we are bashing if that what's you wanna call it, in light of how "amazing" they are :whistling:
Kitten13

You have to remember WHY they are so cheap, regardless of quality. As someone said already, sweat-shops.
Kitten13
And I don't know why you are all complaining about the attitude of staff in Tescos. I am always polite and coutrtious to the customers, as are near enough all of my work colleagues.
Cos we are giving example of how bad the staff are. We can only comment on personal experience.

I personaly found the attitude of the staff in local shops....
.....as you have done yourself, personal experience.

The additive's in petrol, the denial did my 'ead in. I wasn't affected but the denial's were awful.


Additives in petrol?

The petrol was contaminated due to an error at the storage facility completely out of the control of Tesco and it affected Asda, Morrisons and Sainsburys too.

On the subject of sweat shops - they aren't going to go away if Tesco stopped buying clothes from them.

Do you honestly think the clothes from M&S, Next, etc come from any better factories?

Voted Hot, last week I had a look around tesco for some shirts that I needed for my upcoming works experiance, had a great deal such as; good quality cotton shirt and tie [COLOR="Red"]reduced from £14 to £3[/COLOR]!!! BARGAIN in my eyes, grabbed a few while in stock. This was located at the Tesco branch in Stalybridge.

Milk in my town is expensive, those big bottles are £1.97, and same in every supermarket, even same in corner shop! at at old one was about £1.50
#37
well we get childrens clothes from Tesco/Asda, when you're buying for 2 young ones you need cheap clothes as they get through them so quick. If it wasn't for cheap clothes in supermarkets it would cost us a fortune, especially when they were babies...

And no quality issues, I don't recall one item of clothing getting worn out before they outgrew it, although being children the clothes are outgrown withing a year to a year and a half.

I forget how much Asda charge exactly, but it's over £1, but we usually get the milk from just about anywhere else but there since the local shops have it at about 89p :thumbsup:

I'm always on the lookout for a bargain though - regarding clothes, it just depends on what I need, and how much I am comfortable paying, but I would say I am most likely to get them off the local market since it's usually cheaper there (though a favourite of mine for trainers if I'm there on holiday, is the Fantasy Island market in Ingoldmells).

As always though, everybody has their own personal preference - some people obviously wouldn't touch cheap clothes with a barge pole, but others such as me are perfectly happy with it - it all comes down to personal preference, which everybody is of course entitled to.
