UK: Tesco to launch online clothing store
UK retail giant Tesco will this year launch an online clothes store after a successful trial in 2008, upping the stakes in the value apparel marketplace.
The online launch, expected in the autumn, will initially consist of existing lines from across its F&F, Cherokee, Elspeth Gibson and Connie Fisher's My Favourite Things ranges.
A recent trading statement by Tesco showed its clothing sales over Christmas were up by 5% year on year.
Tesco commercial director Richard Brasher said: "Tesco's in-store clothing ranges have been popular in the shops where we sell them - so we've been looking at how we can bring the fashion ranges to more customers, whether they live near a large store or not.
"We're excited about this move and hope customers will enjoy using the service, which will be designed to look different from any of our other online shopping."
