Tesco Direct to close

Tesco Direct to close

Tesco is to shut down its online operation, Tesco Direct - a move that may cost up to 500 jobs. The UK's biggest supermarket has made the decision due to the fact that it is a loss making part of their business.

Tesco Direct is one of the UK's largest online retailers and its closure comes as a big surprise. It has also been a steady source for game console deals over the last few years and this is likely to have a negative impact on average online prices for a lot of hardware and software.

The website is due to close down on 9th July with the distribution centre in Milton Keynes following in August.

We need your help

Running a website like The Digital Fix - especially one with over 20 years of content and an active community - costs lots of money and we need your help. As advertising income for independent sites continues to contract we are looking at other ways of supporting the site hosting and paying for content.

You can help us by using the links on The Digital Fix to buy your films, games and music and we ask that you try to avoid blocking our ads if you can. You can also help directly for just a few pennies per day via our Patreon - and you can even pay to have ads removed from the site entirely.
