The company said it had continued to gain customers from all of its competitors, and had increased its share of the food market to 16.7%. Tesco also announced that it is creating 21,000 new jobs worldwide. Nine thousand of those jobs will be in the UK, where it plans to open 55 new stores and 30 new express shops. Chief executive Terry Leahy said the group was successful because "we look after customers and we look after staff". ...read more.

Conclusion

When the staff in Sainsbury's attends to a spillage or to clean up a mess they do it fast and without hassling the customers. The aisles are also bigger than those in Tesco. The speed of the cleaning service in Sainsbury's is quick. Tesco I don't think that Tesco is as clean and looked after as Sainsbury's is, the aisles are relatively compact and small so if there is a spillage of some kind, when it is attended to the aisles get blocked. Also the speed of attending to any spillages around the store is very slow. Advertising Sainsbury's Sainsbury's form of adertisement is quite eye catching. They advertise via newspaper, using e-mail, through the television services, sent by mail and many more other ways. Their way of advertisement on television is appealing due to the fact that it contains a celebrtity chef. If it was just a normal unknown person it would not be noticed as much. Tesco Tesco have a similar way of advertisement. They too use internet services to send information, and newspapers to send special offer packages and television informing of sales or price reductions in their products.
