Tesco is helping customers get more value out of their shopping experiences with free and fast wi-fi access in stores thanks to a new partnership with BT.

The BT WiFi service will allow customers to download Clubcard vouchers, get product information, browse recipes and take advantage of the latest in store offers much quicker and more conveniently than before.

Geraldine Casey, personnel and IT director, Tesco Ireland, said, “So far, we have WiFi enabled in 113 stores including our Tesco Extra, Super and Metro stores and we look forward to rolling the service out to our Express stores in the near future. The introduction of this  service gives our customers fast and convenient access to product information, pricing and special offers in store and is a natural platform to link our expanding online service.”

Shay Walsh, managing director, Business, BT Ireland said: “Connectivity is becoming an important part of the customer experience. From retailing to banking, customers expect the same connectivity in high-street stores, cafes and bank branches as they get in their homes or workplaces. This partnership with Tesco gives customers the connectivity they expect. It also creates a platform for Tesco to further bring the in-store and online shopping experience closer together for the benefit of its customers.”
