Tesco's on Serpentine Green is an experience in itself. If you want everything and anything available under one roof, you should go here! It is so large that shelf stackers have to roller-skate round.
It stocks the usual grocery items, along with clothes, electrical items, DVDs, CD's, alcohol and books/magazines.
It makes up part of the Serpentine Green centre which showcases a range of shops available in Queensgate, but in an out of town hassle free environment.
On the outskirts of P'boro, just off the A1.
There's a massive car park, & the store is the largest one in a well presented shopping mall. Other stores inc Game, Next, Dororthy Perkins, Boots, New Look.
This branch of Tesco is so big that the checkout supervisors are supplied with roller skates.
This is a great Tesco store - at the time it was built it was promoted as the biggest in the country. Maybe thats still the case, I'm not sure.
Its the centrepiece of a very tidy shopping centre which houses names such as Next, Boots and so on, but the Tesco store itself is worth a visit on its own. Its huge - bigger than you might think, and really does contain anything you might need under the one roof - food, drink, DVDs, electrical goods, clothes and a Tesco direct counter.
Also open 24 hours, and the couple of times I;ve been at 2am ish, its still been steadily busy!
if you like shopping with the masses its the place for you.
Large, uninviting souless place. But build it and they will come.
Tesco Extra located at Serpentine Green is HUGE !!
It sells EVERYTHING. You can literally do your food shop, drink, toiletries, clothes,toys,music, gaming, dvds, gifts, DIY, electricals, gifts, cards, papers and magazines, tobacco, lottery, stamps, photo gifts and processing. There is a chemist and an opticians ! There is free parking and lots of trolley huts (please be aware that you should take a trolley in with you as the trolley chute inside NEVER works!) The only problem is that you pop in for a pint of milk and come out £40 lighter usually!!
Huge store, has everything you need, but awful service staff are bad mannered, and very unhelpful as a whole.
Tend to visit one of the other supermarkets instead if I have the time to drive a bit further!
It is a Very large 24 hr Tesco, but watch out on a Saturday night as it does shut at 10pm, and on a Sunday it closes at 4pm. There is a Wide range of goods but I do find that the stock levels can be disappointing at times for such a large store. I really do feel that they need better stock control. On the the whole, the staff seem very helpful , but I have found on several occasions that they do not really know the stock very well and advise can be poor in some departments. I always seem to leave this store wishing I had gone elsewhere to shop.
The 'Tesco's' store is very big, and is well laid out. The stock levels are consistently high, but this would be expected for a store of this size. The fact it is a 24hour shop is very helpful and beneficial to its customers, as it gives you the freedom to decide when you want to shop, letting you avoid large queues or busy times. The isles are all wide enough for prams, pushchairs or wheelchairs, which can also be very useful. There is a good variety of stock and it is generally easy to find. Most of the staff are friendly and helpful; however some do let the rest down slightly.
Big range of food plus some other home products but not the best quality. Usual supermarket problem with products regularly moved around so hard to find. Nearly always seems busy which makes shopping uncomfortable, compounded by staff wheeling around massive trolleys as they select items for the on-line shoppers. The only things really in its favour are convenience and reasonable prices.
