    BRATISLAVA, SLOVAKIA, 23 October 2014 – Tesco PLC today released its 2014/15 Group results. In Slovakia we have focused on improving our existing stores, re-launching our popular Tesco Value brand and opening four new stores – 3 supermarkets and 1 Express store, providing customers with even more convenient ways to shop with us. We’d like to thank customers for their continued loyalty and colleagues for their outstanding service and hard work during the last six months.

    General Manager of Tesco Slovakia, Martin Dlouhy said:

    “In a challenging food retail environment, we continue to offer our customers a range of products and services to meet their needs. Our Hravo a Zdravo campaign put food at the heart of everything we do, offering customers ideas and advice on how to eat healthy, tasty meals, and our re-launched Tesco Value range now offers customers even more quality products. Our market-leading Grocery Home Shopping service continues to provide customers with a convenient way to shop with us.

    “Earlier this year, we also published our first ‘Tesco and Society Report’, providing details of the work we’ve been doing to realise our three big ambitions - to help tackle food waste, provide opportunities for young people and help our colleagues and costumers lead healthy and more active lives.”

    “I’d like to thank colleagues for all their hard work over the last six months and look forward to serving our customers in the future.”
