    I think that they, like Pinky, have taken over the world. In Europe they are generally called Tescos, but in the US they were Fresh and Easy, a half-baked concept that had a massive fail.

    •  good. i'm glad. they're horrid. (5+ / 0-)

      we have enough home grown horridity right here on our own.

      they are simply everywhere in england.  i live on and off in a small small town of 5000 in england.  there's a giagantic tescos there.  one in the next town over of approx. 6000 people.  one in the next one over from there.  and so on.
      i don't know how they all thrive, but they seem to.

      there is nothing more ungodly depressing than shopping for wilted vegetables  in a cavernous tescos on a dark winter day.

      •  Tesco (0+ / 0-)

        I've only been in Tesco's in England, and have to agree.  Once I was chatting with an English friend and he remarked that a division of his company had moved to Slough (an armpit of England), and I made a little stream of consciousness poem about Slough and a Tesco store there.  Just very silly, but we had a chuckle.

        Far away, and
        fourteen months since,
        the windmills of Slough turn,
        turn,
        turn.
        Five-grain bread at least, we need,
        Hovis-like, to stiffen lips, heart, male apparatus.
        Some think it end-of-the-line;
        others, gateway to the Great West.
        We know it as Mother Slough,
        cradle of science, high street beyond peer,
        its Tesco replete with Scottish Beef and low carbon footprint;
        it probably even has an MP.

            Did buy some nice pudding rice there.  There was a recipe for rice pudding on the bag that called for a 'knob of butter'.  Gotta love those Brits.
