It's business is retailing groceries and general merchandise.Opening it's first store in 1929 in Middlesex, England, Tesco now has over 6,350 stores worldwide in Europe, Asia and North America. The name Tesco is made up of of a combination of the initials from T.E. Stockwell (from whom the founder purchased a tea shipment) and the first two letters of the founder Jack Cohen's surname. The company has enjoyed rapid growth since it's inception, with it's highest periods of growth being between 1929-1939 and a massive boom from the mid-90s-2005. The original motto of Tesco was 'pile it high and sell it cheap', which was remodelled in the 1990s to encompass a more diverse range of class in customers with the introduction of 'Tesco Value' and 'Tesco Finest' ranges. Tesco also has a retail website and has expanded business into numerous services such as insurance, mobile networks, photo printing, pharmacies and more.
