Tesco has been trying to enliven its Extra stores lately: the supermarket chain suffers from fierce competitors (Aldi and Lidl to name but a few) and aims to win back its customers with appealing offers and services. One way is to set up concession stands for fashion brands such as Burtons, Dorothy Perkins and Evans in five of the biggest Tesco stores. The concept is still being tested but Claire's Accessories, Mothercare and Timpson are also interested.
And, as reported by The Grocer, another way could be pet grooming, which makes sense since Matt Davies, Tesco's UK & ROI new Chief Executive, filled eight years of his successful career as Pets at Home's CEO. So if you live in Cardiff -and if you have pets-, you'll be able to try this new Pet Den service in Culverhouse Cross Tesco Extra store.
"We’re always looking at new ways our stores can best serve the needs of local customers" explains a Tesco spokesman, "so we decided to trial introducing some great brands to five stores which complement our existing offer, including plans for a Pet Den at our Culverhouse Cross store in Cardiff".
