retail news in context, analysis with attitude

• In the UK, the Guardian reports that "Tesco is going head to head with Amazon by extending its same-day online grocery delivery service across the UK," offering it to 99 percent of Britain's households.

To this point, Tesco only has been offering same-day delivery to its London customers.

According to the Guardian, "The move comes after the launch of AmazonFresh, which entered the UK market last year, raising fears that the dominance of the so called big four supermarkets – Tesco, Morrisons, Sainsbury’s and Asda – could be further eroded. Amazon, which has also teamed up with Morrisons in the UK, operates its service across London, Surrey and parts of Hampshire."
