For all those wondering how to check stock, here is how you do it (seeing as nobody has been helpful to those asking)

1. On the homepage of the groceries app, click browse all groceries

2. Click check your local store stock

3. Search for your game or change store and search

    in the groceries app. click the search button. the top option is to check stock at your local store before visiting.

    it doesn't really work i find as i have gone to the store to find it is not in stock, when the app tells me it is. depends on how quickly the store update the stock status i guess, or how popular the store is.

    no. that is what i am saying. i was looking at ale for hubby as that is pretty much the main thing i go to tesco for and i don't want to drive 2.5 miles to the store only to find out they don't have this in stock, and drive back home!

    it says there is stock, so off i go. when i got there, didly squat. i thought maybe they all sold out in the 15 minutes it took me to drive to the store, so i checked the stock again on my app, and it still says there is stock.

    so i think you can only rely on the 'no stock' rather than the 'in stock' status.

    in stock can also mean one item left on the shelf as i found this with the wine. it said in stock and there were 2 bottles on the shelf.

    if you are looking at the 6 bottles with 25% discount, you will get the 25% discount if they don't have 6 bottles and only deliver 2 for example, by calling customer service.

    if they don't have stock and cancel the order altogether, they won't charge you the delivery so there is no risk really.

    Is this true within the iOS groceries app as I can't see any such option...?

    When you got there did you ask them to check out the back? The shelf stackers do not scan stock onto the shelf. So it must be registered somewhere, and there is only one place left, and that is the stores

    The app is flakey. I've tested on various devices running different operating systems and can't get it to show. I asked two colleagues yesterday (with two devices i've already tested), and straight away they could see stock options for local stores.. go figure!

    Flakey doesn't come close. I've tried it now on three iOS devices (2 x iPhone & 1 x iPad) and nothing. Bloody rubbish thing

    for those who can't see the stock checker on the app, it may be that you are not signed in?

    Nope signed in. Tried it also not signed in. The only thing I can think of is I don't have any stores in my local area which support the stock checker. I've changed iOS devices but not where my phone is when I use the app

    FYI in IOS, on the homepage of the app you can click the button 'Make an in-store shopping list' this allows you to set a store and then search for items letting you know if its in stock.

    So, not sure if I've managed to figure it out, but it's a bit busted for me on iOS too, but I've found that if you go on search, and just enter some gibberish, you'll get a Sorry, we didn't find anything for... and then an option to Browse all groceries. After tapping that then I see the option at the top of the screen to Check your local store stock where you can then choose which store you'd like to check and search that particular store's stock.
    Bit of a roundabout way of doing it, but at least there's still the option I suppose!

    Strange. I’m not sure why they’d have it for some and not others. Looks like this on mine.

    I'm on android. Open tesco grocery app. Go to home. Click on shop in-store. Select check stock. Choose the store. And you should see it hopefully that helps.

    This isn't available at all. Even with the excellent efforts of everyone on this thread something is happening deep in the Tesco app preventing this stock checking and it's unclear if it's just an iOS thing or it is all platforms.

    I’m in the same boat as you. No matter whether it be iOS or Android I just don’t get the option of a stock checker despite all the helpful advice given.

    When I’m logged in and on the home page my options are ‘book a slot’ or ‘browse all grocery’. Browsing just lets me find an item and only gives ‘add to basket’ option. Using search has the same result, it lists what I’ve searched for and just gives me option add to the basket.

    Don’t suppose you’re also based in the North East?

    I appreciate the effort I really do. But some of us who are saying we do not have this on their apps really do not have it. See this entry page to the Tesco Groceries app.

    Finally found where Tesco placed the stock checker option in the Groceries app.

    1. Open the Groceries app and tap on “Shop in-store”

    46859224-sbIX0.jpg

    2. You will see the stock checker option.

    3. Tap on it and look up items.

    Hope this helps someone.
