Tesco Express - Lucky Saint, 01 Sampling, Portable sampling carts

Tesco Express – Proximity Sampling

You can engage shoppers in office areas, busy stations, city centres and suburban area high streets. The use of portable sampling carts enables you to be positioned in front of the external entrance areas of these busy stores.

Tesco do not own the Public Highway in front of these stores, so LINK provide regional permits for on street promotion where required.

Grenade Sampling - Tesco Superstores and Tesco Express

Tesco Superstores – Proximity Sampling

These larger format stores are typically located on busy suburban area high streets. Shoppers arrive for both a daily top up and a full weekly shop. The selection of Tesco stores can be aligned to match your consumer profile; and availability of sampling event spaces for portable sampling stations.

Tesco Extra – Proximity Sampling

The largest sized Tesco Extra stores which are located on busy retail parks and shopping malls have bookable event spaces which host experiential sampling event days. These massive sized stores attract upwards of 10,000 shoppers per day and can create equally huge retail sales growth for your brand. Many sampling event days at these sites have created sales of over 500 units SOLD per store, per day.

For full creative control, LINK pay the owners of the privately owned retail parks and shopping malls to be able to site the activity close to the Tesco stores.

Tesco In Store Sampling - Mable with a table for Benecol at Tesco 2022

Tesco In-Store Sampling

LINK can no longer recommend in store sampling at Tesco.

LINK historically offered and organised both in store and car park sampling booked via the official channels with Tesco. Now only Tesco appointed staff can run sampling at Tesco owned sites.  In store may mean a limited sized table, limited catering, limited staffing and limited branding. All of which combine for an equally limited brand experience, limited reach and limited results.
