Groceries delivered to the airport for when you land
There's nothing worse than an empty fridge when you get back off your holidays. You're itching for a brew and all you have is stale milk and half a tea-bag.
Well, Tesco have come up with a natty solution by announcing that they'll be offering a service where they'll deliver your groceries to you as soon as you get back from your holidays.
Tesco are calling it 'the UK’s first interactive virtual grocery store' and it unveiling at Gatwick Airport, which basically allows outbound travellers to choose products and book a home delivery slot for their return. Whether the delivery van will actually turn up on-time is another matter.
Basically, by scanning barcodes with your smartphone, you'll be able to add products to online baskets. It sounds tedious, but there's very little else to do at airports.
Ken Towle, Tesco’s internet retailing director, said: "The virtual store blends clicks and bricks, bringing together our love of browsing with the convenience of online shopping."
Shut up Ken.
