UK’s first virtual supermarket

Tesco have just launched a virtual grocery store at Gatwick Aiport.  The idea is that passengers, whilst waiting for their flight to depart, can order  food for home delivery on the day they get back.  This means that they have ‘fresh food in the fridge’ upon their return.  To see how it works and find out what customers think, take a look at this operations video.

If you are interested in retail, this Tesco website has a number of videos that tell you about other aspects of their operations.
