retail news in context, analysis with attitude

• In the UK, the Telegraph reports that Tesco has launched a used car sales website.

According to the story, the British used car market is a roughly $39 billion (US) business, and Tesco is hoping to grab a slice of it by providing a “convenient, easy and safe” forum where people can also save as much as 20 percent on the cost of a used car.

Shoppers also will be able to earn Tesco Clubcard points on purchases made on the site.
