Harris and Hoole is 49% Tesco

 

I used to shop at Tesco. Then one holiday I went to Cornwall where my parents are from and whilst there I visited Redruth. I was amazed at how many shops had shut down on the high street. This wasn’t 2010 this was 2004 and just outside of Redruth was a massive Tesco Super market. The link was clear to me and I have avoided shopping in a Tesco ever since.

As an interior designer I have worked with a few independent coffee shops so imagine my surprise and disgust when I found out that Tesco have now launched it’s own Artisan Coffee Shop chain called Harris and Hoole. Tesco own a 49% share in the company and will be promoting it as a family run venture. I have not been to any of their coffee shops and can’t comment on the experience.
