WHY IS THIS SHOP INTERESTING TO VIEW?

Tesco’s Metro store at Tooley Street in London demonstrates the retailer’s current design thinking, this format is part of a plan to ‘Build a Better Tesco’ in the UK.

 

The store offers a great range of fresh fruit and veg, baked goods from the in store bakery, delicious sandwiches made fresh in store, a hot chicken counter plus a salad and olive bar. There is also a selection of non-food ranges, including health and beauty, DVDs, books, stationary and cookware.

 

The store boasts the trendy artisan Harris+Hoole coffee shop, which is a discrete but attached entity. They has been careful to maintain its original look and feel with raw wood, hand-written signage and staff in casual clothing. Alongside a Euphorium Bakery, which treats food almost as fashion, has been given a large portion of the floor space. A central table featuring breads to sample creates added engagement and a marketplace aesthetic.

 

The retailer has also installed a extensive food to go feature in the shop, using the ‘warming up’ wooden elements that have been a feature of Tesco refurbishments over the last year.

 

As the Metro format is more about convenience than extensive ranging, Tesco has included a touchscreen towards the back of the store. This allows customers to browse the supermarket’s wider range of merchandise and place orders online for home delivery or in-store collection.
