We don't have Wallmart over here but everyone seems to know what that is, just thought other parts of the world might have know about TESCO.

We have ASDA over here which is apparently owned by Wallmart.

According to this TESCO is worldwide also, including the US.

TESCO have moved on since sending Dudley Moore all over the world to chase chickens.

What does Tesco Sell?

It would be quicker to say what it doesn't sell! Basically it sells pretty much everything. Think of a bigger word for hypermarket and that's Tesco. It's equivalent to Walmart and then some.

Not all Tescos are big though - they range in size from Tesco Express (simple, local convenience stores with a limited range) to midsize to FUUUUUCKING HUGE!

There are at least seven Tescos within 5 miles of me - 1 HUUUUUUUUGE (Kingston), 1 extremely big (Bletchley, my local), 1 above average supermarket size (Wolverton) then at least 4 Expresses.

Generally they are big though and my favourite of the big four chains (Asda, Morrisons, Sainsburys and of course Tesco).

Is it like Walmart where even the rats and mice running around have price tags on them?

Not quite. There aren't generally rats or mice (inside the store). Occasionally they do have birds flying about though. They have price tags on.

Truthfully, have only seen birds in Walmart. But once saw some mice teeth marks on some boxes of powdered milk.

I made do with a bag of haribos like!

Nothing much has happened in the past year, but interesting news has been unveiled, today!

http://www.bolton.gov.uk/website/news/Pages/NewlibraryforLittleLever.aspx

Whereas every other town/village is having their local libraries scrapped, we're getting a new one!! Huzzah!!

The approximate "six times the size" building description sounds a lot like the old Tesco building, but speculation is rife over whether that'll be the chosen place.

Hmm.. Curious..

Meanwhile, KwikSave has now been changed (AGAIN) to a Nisa store, so the KwikSave name is no longer part of our village

Where my parents live there used to be a Nat West, a TSB, a Halifax and a Yorkshire Bank.

All of 'em have gone now. It's a sign of the times. The only time I set foot in a bank is to pay in a compo cheque for Royal Mail losing my stuff. Other than that, it's all online banking. The olds don't do things like that, though.
Posted : Friday, 11 August 2017, 07:23

Yeah, all my banking is done online.
Then come Xmas or Birthday, you get the odd £10 in a card, and have to figure out what the fuck you're going to do with it...!

For me, I'll continue as-is.
For Mum, though. She does an awful lot of physical-cash banking, and has already had to do 2 trips into town to do things she used to be able to do down the street.
Frustrating.. :\

I wonder if these new shitty fivers are an attempt to phase out physical money by getting everyone to hate it?
