Almost 1,000 customers per week will be able to order their shopping online and have it delivered directly to their homes. The new service offers Slovak customers almost 20,000 lines of fresh and frozen food, groceries and non-food items such as toys, newspapers and magazines, and basic household items.
The launch follows a successful trial with customers and staff and is part of the Tesco group strategy to be an outstanding international retailer in-store and online.
“This is a new innovative offer for the Slovak market and we believe that the service will help Slovak customers in today’s hectic world, not just by making shopping easier, but also saving them time.” said Martin Dlouhý, CEO Tesco Slovakia
The launch is the latest development in Tesco’s roll-out of its online grocery service to its businesses across the world. “We’ve used our learning and experience from our existing online operations in the UK, Ireland, South Korea, and more recently in the Czech Republic and Poland, to create an innovative IT platform that is industry leading and scalable,” comments Ken Towle, Online Food and Internet Retailing Director.
Tesco will initially operate from two stores covering Bratislava and several smaller towns such as Senec, Pezinok and Stupava.
