A look at the UK’s first virtual grocery store

14 August 2012Blog


The vegetable isle will never be the same again as Tesco launch their first UK virtual grocery store at Gatwick Airport. Following the success of Tesco’s virtual stores in South Korea, UK shoppers can now loose the trolley and order their groceries with a swipe of a screen.

The virtual store is made up of 4 interactive touch screens which allow shoppers to browse their way through a catalog of 80 “everyday” food products. Users can order groceries by scanning the on-screen bar codes with their smartphone and the Tesco grocery application.

Tesco has chosen Gatwick Airport so travelers can schedule a grocery delivery for their return home, avoiding an empty fridge after a long trip.
