The tremendous surge in volume is being fueled in part by the UK-based food, chain store operator’s Apr. 22 announcement that it is dropping prices on more than 30 products including bacon, baked beans, broccoli, peppers, sugar, lettuce, cucumber portions and lines from Tesco’s bread ranges.

Tesco says the price cuts mean that Tesco.com customers could save up to $218 a year, while Click & Collect customers could save up to $186 a year. And the 200,000 customers already signed up to Delivery Saver could save up to a whopping $423 per year.
Tesco operates food stores and associated activities throughout the UK, Republic of Ireland, Hungary, Poland, Czech Republic, Slovakia, Thailand, South Korea, Taiwan, Turkey, Malaysia and Japan.
