Tesco's Competitors

Tesco, Asda and Sainsbury's are much bigger stores than the discount
stores like Aldi and Netto. This means the bigger supermarkets will be
able to sell more goods and gain a bigger profit. If Aldi and Netto
were to make their stores bigger they would be able to compete with
Tesco, Asda and Sainsbury's in the sales department. This will mean
that they will be able to contain more goods and sell more to gain a

look around the supermarket. The smaller companies should use this if
they want to compete. The supermarket staff should put certain objects
in popular places to make them buy them while they are buying the
chosen cheap product. The large supermarkets use this effectivaly.

The larger companies have extra facilities (that you have to pay to
use) in the supermarkets to gain extra profit. They have things like
café's and newsagents to make extra money on top of the money made
inside the main store.
