Interesting. One of the questions during the retail panel today at CEDEM CEE concerned the impact of the Internet on shopping schemes and retailers. The general answer was that so far, its biggest effect has been on the consumer electronics market. David Nekovar of Tesco said his company was considering increasing its on-line presence, including a pick-up system, where you order on-line and then go to the store to pick up your goods.
Then we see that in the UK, Tesco could be planning to launch a price war and FT Alphaville figures this will hit on-line grocers.
