Fresh & Easy 101

We've selected a few linked articles (see Fresh & Easy Bibliography below) that provide a good background on Tesco's Fresh & Easy Neighborhood Market for you, our readers.

The first Fresh & Easy stores opened in early November in Southern California. In early December, five stores opened in the Las Vegas, Nevada metropolitan area. In mid-December the first Arizona Fresh & Easy grocery markets opened in suburban Phoenix.

We chose the articles linked below because they will provide you with a good overview of the Fresh & Easy venture, store format, operations, marketing plans and other issues. Not only will reading them qualify you to pass Fresh & Easy 101, but you will be on your way to completing Fresh & Easy 102 (advanced) as well. Happy reading!
