retail news in context, analysis with attitude

China Daily reports that Tesco is launching an online shopping business in China, offering free delivery from stores in Shanghai.

The story notes that Walmart already is in the space via its majority ownership stake in Yihaodian, the Chinese e-grocery store.

"Tesco China's online shopping service will enhance our role as a multi-channel retailer and provide better shopping experience for customers in the digital age with integrated retailing service," Paul Ritchie, Tesco China CEO, tells China Daily.
