I took a photo of one to show you just how basic it is.

This doesn't really suggest the sophisticated advertising for which the slogan is known.
It's not just unsophisticated, it's also off-brand given that the much-promoted slogan is "This is not just food, this is M&S Food".

Where did the "any" come from?

So what's the thinking behind putting Jack's branded stuff in Tesco's entrance promo asile? I'm hardly going to buy some, think "this ain't too bad" and then drive to Leeds to stock up?

It’s a bit weird. If I want to visit somewhere like Aldi/Lidl, I’ll go to Aldi/Lidl.

Just another label ready to go I suppose. Not unlike how the Fresh & Easy label showed up on some ready-to-cook veg and stuff.

Incidentally, Jacks seem to be moving more towards a mini version of Costco than an Aldi/Lidl clone.

I wouldn't be surprised if some of those products are identical to the Tesco own brand ones.

Unsurprisingly, the Nectar/Esso tie up doesn't apply to joint-venture Tesco Express sites: https://www.nectar.com/esso

It'll be interesting to see if any Clubcard points are awarded for fuel after the end of the month.

I'd read some speculation on Twitter that the Jack's items being sold in Tesco was some way of getting rid of short-dated / overstock items. The one and only Jack's line at my local Tesco - 4 x 330ml Jack's Lemonade at 79p - has a date of January 2020, which if anything suggests it's new stock.

Bizarrely, I was in Tesco yesterday and they had Jack’s bags for life for sale.
