Walk into any Tesco branch and you know exactly what to expect because its like visiting an old friends house.
The things I like best about this particular store is that its not too large in size; Ive been to some branches of Tesco and they seem to be too big. The walk from toilet rolls to beans seems to be miles long! I get lost in them!
But theres no danger of that in this Tesco because its just the right size! Theres a nice cafe and the toilets are always clean and looked after which is an added bonus.
I think others would agree with me because I find its always so busy!!
This is another example of how superstores are now catering for almost everything you may want. Despite having almost the same products at, mostly, very similar prices to the ASDA which is within spitting distance (Yeuch!), both store carparks are usually full and the owners of the cars almost always in the shops spending money.
They stock all the usual Tesco goods plus clothes, toys, household items, white goods, in fact, almost everything could want to buy on a normal afternoon shopping trip.
The checkouts are efficient and the supervisors are often on hand to guide you to the least busy till.
All of the staff have, in my experience, shown themselves interested in doing their jobs with as much cheerfulness as they can.
The Tesco's in St. Helens is a monster. It is pretty big and the car park is probably bigger than the shop itself. It is in the middle of town so access is easy. They have a large range of products so getting what you want is never a problem. They also have their own tesco value range which can be handy if you are shopping on a budget. There are cash machines outside and inside there is a selection of self service machines if you dont want to go to a human cashier. The self service tills do generally work a lot better than the other supermarkets of the towns tills.
All in all I find Tesco's convenient but in the last few months I have noticed that the St. Helens branch has increased its prices on a lot of products and for this reason I dont do my weekly shop here any more although I do still nip in from time to time.
