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?
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.
Thought this was a nice forum, clearly not.

That's a lot classier than Sainsbury's new effort.

I went to an Asda today for the first time in ages, and I’m pleased to report that they have rationalised the number of different fonts on their POS down to around 5.

So these Tesco's where they've closed the fresh food counters, do they actually have any plans to do anything with this space?

After launching Jack's, Tesco have now lurched to the other extreme and is considering launching a chain of high end convenience shops to take on M&S Simply Food.

Smart move I reckon. Potentially better margins, combined with Tesco’s existing systems and distribution. Nervousness around the economy from Brexit means there’s potentially a lot of people downgrading from eating out to eating something of a decent quality from a supermarket instead.
