Tesco to hike up click-and-collect charge

Tesco has announced it will add a £4 charge to all click-and-collect orders under £40 from July 23.

Previously the £4 surcharge was only applied to orders under £25.

The charge will also apply to all deliveries and the supermarket’s Delivery Saver, where shoppers pay for an annual delivery pass to reduce the cost of delivery slots.

The surcharge will be applied on top of the current £1 to £6 delivery cost depending on which time slots shoppers choose for delivery. If users order goods over £40 (or £25 currently), they only have to pay for delivery, there’s no surcharge.

Tesco says any orders placed before 23 July but delivered after this date will not be charged the £4 surcharge if their order value is between £25 and £40.

Meanwhile, the supermarket is promising to reward staff with a one-off “turnaround bonus” worth up to 5% of their salary if they hit sales and profit targets this year according to The Guardian.

The potential payout will be in shares that staff can cash immediately as chief executive Dave Lewis tries to get Britain’s biggest retailer back on track after a slump in profits and sales, as well as an accounting scandal which led to a profits mis-statement of more than £263m.
