Tesco history
Tesco PLC is a UK based supermarket chain. It is the largest British retailer, both by global sales and domestic market share, and the fourth largest retailer in the world behind Wal-Mart of the USA, Carrefour of France, and The Home Depot of the USA. Tesco PLC is listed on the LSE...
Tesco started life as a 1 man business in London's East End. Tesco was founded by Jack Cohen, son of a Polish Jewish tailor. He sold groceries in markets of the East End from 1919. The Tesco brand first appeared in 1924. The name derived after Jack Cohen bought a large shipment of tea of T.E. Stockwell, formerly Messrs Torring and Stockwell of Mincing Lane, he made new labels by using the first 3 letters of a supplier's name and the first 2 letters of his surname forming the word "TESCO". There is a wide mis-conception that the name is an abbreviation of the name of Jack Cohen's wife, Tessa Cohen, becoming TESCO, this is wrong as Jack was never married to a Tessa.
