Tesco is to repurpose excess space at its UK stores as a network of “urban fulfilment centers” to ramp up its offer for online shoppers. CEO Dave Lewis said the first of the new centers would open in the next 12 months and were part of a plan to make Tesco more agile in the face of growing competition in the online delivery space from the likes of Amazon.
