Sir Terry Leahy, Chief Executive of Tesco, who picked up the awards, said: “This is a great recognition of the brilliant job all our staff do for our customers.”
Sir Terry Leahy highlighted the honour of winning ‘Britain’s Favourite Supermarket’, which is based on an ACNielson survey of more than 10,000 shoppers asked about price, range, quality, service and availability.
