Although Tesco had a very dominant presence before they became a brick and click organization they now have become one of the biggest British multinational grocery and general merchandise retailer businesses. One of the disadvantages of an e-commerce business is the lack of human contact, however Tesco have retail stores along with an online presence so people can choose whether to go to the store or order the items online. Now as Tesco is a e-commerce business customers can look at their prices before they purchase their items meaning it is more convenient for the public to do their shopping. The aim of Tesco becoming a e-commerce business was for it to be 'The world's biggest online grocery retailer' Tesco's chief executive Terry Leahy also said that 'we intend to become the UK's No.1 e-commerce business. With Tescos online expansion their target market increased and their competitors were restricted to expanding their physical presence this was the case for ASDA. Tesco PLC made sure that their strategy paid off quickly with Tesco.com being the first UK grocery online shopping service to break even at the end of 2000 (Tesco Plc, 2000).
