Tesco operates almost 7,000 stores around the world. In the UK, they provide about six different store formats to their customers which vary in size and range of products. Tesco Superstores, for example, are standard large supermarkets, selling mostly food products and a much smaller range of non-food products in comparison to Extra stores.
