Tesco launch 'drive-thru' supermarket
Woah – is Bitterwallet sponsored by Tesco today or something? No actually – but here’s another story about the scary supermarket giant and their plans for a... “drive-thru” supermarket!
The idea will be trialled in their Baldock store later this week and it works thus – the customer orders their stuff online and then drives to a designated area in the store’s car park at a designated time, where their goods are loaded into their vehicle for them. Sort of like home delivery but without the luxury of staying at home then.
At £2.00 a pop, the service will be cheaper than home delivery, which begins at £3.00. It’s an enormous boon if you enjoy hating being around members of the wretched public in supermarkets, and here at Bitterwallet, we’re always on the lookout for enormous boons.
But will it catch on? And would a ‘drive-in’ supermarket not be better, where you sit in a car and watch a film while someone goes in and does your shopping for you?
