Tesco has just reported a fall in profits for the first time in about 20 years. Much of the problem has been their ventures overseas. They recently withdrew from Japan and I prdict they will have to retreat from USA in the not too distant future. In the UK they are losing market share to Sainsbury amongst others. At this point I ask you to read my post of August 25.
During the olympics supermarkets in England were given a temporary extension to the Sunday shopping hours.
I took these pictures at 6pm on a Sunday during this period of extended shopping hours.
The store is a large Tesco which was open 24hours/day.
I think they demonstrate that there is no demand for longer hours on Sunday.
This is your opportunity, Tesco - close your supermarkets on Sundays and reduce your UK overheads.
Take the lead and when the others follow we can get our Sundays back.
