CHESHUNT, England, 2017-Mar-08 — /EPR Retail News/ — Tesco has today (7 Mar 2017) announced it is extending its Same Day Click and Collect service, allowing customers to pick up their online groceries more quickly and easily than ever before.
Customers can now order an unlimited number of items before 9 am and book a two hour window to collect their groceries from midday onwards.
