Tesco is closing fresh seafood counters due to online shopping

Tesco UK has decided to close its fresh seafood counters in 90 stores due to a challenging grocery market and a growing e-commerce sector. "In our four years of turnaround, we’ve made good progress, but the market is challenging and we need to continually adapt to remain competitive and respond to how customers want to shop.

Not only are customers shopping in different ways, but we know that they have less time available to shop too – which means they are using our counters less frequently", Tesco UK CEO Jason Tarry declared in a statement.
The measure will affect almost 9,000 employees, some of them in the company's head office teams. Cutbacks are to be done also in hot foodservice area due to reduced demand registered in the last three years.
