    Tesco rant...

    Why oh why oh why do people find the need to add apostrophe s to the end of Tesco?

    If you've been to Asda, you don't say Asda's.
    If you've been to Aldi, you don't say Aldi's.
    If you've been to Lidl, you don't say Lidl's.

    So why is it that for some people; Tesco becomes Tesco's?

    Sure, there's "Sainsbury's" which is their trademarked name after Mr J Sainsbury, the same can be attributed to Morrisson's, but they're named after their founder, unlike Tesco.
