Sky are saying...
"Following a detailed review, the supermarket giant has determined "there is no route to profitability for this small, loss-making part of the business", according to a statement released by the company."
On 9 July, we’ll be closing the Tesco Direct website. We’ll continue to offer our Uniform Embroidery Service and Tesco Mobile products at tesco.com.
Our main website, tesco.com, will continue to sell grocery products as usual, alongside a selected range of items that were previously available on Tesco Direct. A large range of clothing, homewares, electricals, toys and gifts will continue to be available in-store too.
- Can I still place orders?
Yes, you can keep placing orders until 9 July, while stocks last.
From 22 May, we won’t be able to offer next-day delivery. Instead, orders will take 2-5 days to arrive – and the same applies to Click+Collect orders. But if that changes, we’ll let you know.
Please check your account to make sure your contact details are up to date, as we’ll text or email you if there are any further delays.
- How will the closure of Tesco Direct affect delivery times?
