That’s how much Tesco makes according to this article by James Robinson in today’s Observer newspaper. That’s not far off a quarter of a million pounds an hour, or £6million per day. Nice work if you can get it.
The statistic that really startled me though is that Tesco takes £1 of every £8 we spend as consumers in the UK. That really must make them alarmingly powerful.
I wonder what their view on localism is.
