The new online marketplace will give customers the chance to shop for thousands of third-party products alongside Tesco groceries.

Marketplace expands Tesco’s online offer

The retailer said the launch of a marketplace, first reported by The Grocer, would sit alongside its core offer and make it “a one-stop shop for everything customers need”.

The new platform has launched with circa 9,000 products available across DIY, garden, home, pet care and toys.

Despite third-party products being listed next to Tesco groceries online, deliveries will be fulfilled directly by suppliers.

Marketplace director Peter Filcek said: “This is a really exciting moment as we expand our online offer – making it even more convenient for customers to shop at Tesco and even more rewarding with customers able to collect Clubcard points on all purchases.

“We’re constantly looking at ways to improve the shopping experience for our customers, and our new marketplace offers them the same great quality and value they have come to expect from Tesco across an even bigger range of products, from our specially-selected partners.

“We look forward to expanding the range of products and brands even more over the coming months.”
