(also Tesco’s)
one of Britain’s largest chains of supermarkets. It was started by Jack Cohen (1898–1979), a Jewish immigrant who started selling tea in a market in the East End of London just after World War I. In 1931 he opened two food shops in London, and by the beginning of World War II there were about 100 Tesco shops in or near London. In the 1970s, Tesco ‘superstores’ began to appear and there are now hundreds all over Britain, in or just outside most towns and cities. The largest ones sell not only food but also clothes and household goods, as well as providing other services. In 1997, Tesco started its own bank:
