Tesco Cars closes for new orders

by

Tesco Cars has closed its doors to new orders just one year after its launch.

The supermarket chain’s operation had hoped to provide consumers with quality used cars and connect them with a network of more than 1000 independent garages for more affordable servicing and repair work than is available at franchises.

Tesco planned on buying cars from rental companies and other fleets, but difficulties in securing supply of stock is blamed for the closure which was announced through the consumer-facing website today.
