When the E.U was set up after the ww2 it was set up to easily transport resources such as coal between 2 or more countries where resources had been used up or have been destroyed in the original country so the countries who agreed to the treaty worked together to support each other. So far the E.U has allowed 3.5 million jobs that are linked between two or more countries for instance factories are set up in France to help run stores within the U.K, so the U.K being within E.U is relevant to Tesco because it allows easy access between countries to transport goods and set up resources and establishing a relationship with cheaper suppliers from other countries, so it is relevant to Tesco by allowing them to transport goods without being stopped or delayed between boarders.

But then it does allow them to gain an opportunity if they do successfully attract a new customer base so profit would increase also would the reputation of the store would increase as well. ...read more.
