I go here everyday during the week. you can buy whatever you like. super big store and you find everything you want together with an internal cafeteria plus clothing shop on the upper level. . great to have this store close to for my lunch break.
Everything you would expect from Tesco. Massive bright lit impersonal warehouse of unsustainable foodstuffs from around the globe, with a questionable record for accountability and reliability of their food suppliers.
First time I had been in one in well over a year and it was horrid!
Grumpy staff at the check outs, to boot. I know it's not the most fun job in the world, I have done my fair share of supermarket, off licence, and general retail work, but you don't grump at nice customers. It wasn't busy either! Faux pas. Be nice to the nice ones!
This used to be my local supermarket a few years back. Then it was new and a flagship store and everything was fresh and nice. A truly 5 star store back then.
Today I came back and boy it has gone downhill, now it's like a bad store in a bad area... Stuff was just laying around on the shelves and no attention to detail. The most annoying part of the visit was that the delicatessen was just manned by one person (an older woman) that was more busy washing some plastic stuff than serving any customers!
Not the store you want to do your weekly shopping in!
The Kensington branch of Tesco, with its two-storey glass facade, has become something of a feature on the Cromwell Road between West Kensington and Earl's Court. It regularly features as a backdrop for news broadcasts whenever the BBC or ITV want to comment on the company. (It's also prominent on the eastern flight-path into Heathrow at night).
As such, it is something of a flagship store, and although not especially large, it is supposedly a cut above your average Tesco: it has a cafe, Deli Counter, fresh Fish and Meat Counters, an in-store health-store concession, and ranges specifically covering Kosher, Asian, Afro-caribbean cuisines and specialist dietary needs (eg gluten-free, dairy-free). Up-market goodies like exotic olive oils are stocked here which are not found in its stores outside London.
A surprise, then, that it does not seem particularly well managed. At peak time, queues often form quite quickly, and the pledge to open another till if a queue has more than two people waiting seems often to be observed in the breach.
Despite 24-hour opening, night-times can be the worst: I went late one night to avoid the queues, and instead found myself waiting for 20 minutes as one lone assistant worked her socks off to serve a queue that at one point had 25 peope in it. Commendably, she coped with rather better humour than I would have.
I like this tesco, first of all it has got a massive car pack which makes life easier and you dont have to keep driving around and around looking for a space.
Then as soon as you go into the store there is the customer services right there on your right. This store also stocks a good variety of kitchen small appliances.
Upstairs they have lots of office stuff from printers to MP3's
The toilets are upstairs as well
The staff are helpful and pleasant, the shop is big and stocky so go check it out. And it also has a lift to take you upstairs just in case your trolley is full.
This is Tesco is my normal shopping supermarket.The shop was very busy and it was in central of london.The shop offered a great range of products and even could offer some oriential products.The opening time was also very good,24hours,however,in the late time,usually no fresh vegtables left.
One thing I don't like this shop was no price checking machine in the shop and sometimes you couldn't find the correct price lable on the shelf.
In all,I still in love with this shop a lot as it was big and very easy to reach.
