Tesco Direct catalogue
The Tesco Direct website provides an online catalogue, but a print version is also available from most stores. Tesco don't post catalogues on request. To get one, call a store first and ask them if they have any in stock. If they do, visit the store and pick one up. If this is not convenient, remember that all the details are available online. You can find stores using the Tesco store locator. New printed catalogues appear in the Spring and Autumn.
The website version of the Tesco Direct catalogue has several advantages over the print version.
- The print version will go out of date quite quickly. The website version always has bang-up-to-date price and product information.
- There are always more products listed on the website. In fact, all products sold by Tesco are on the website, except for those that are discontinued.
If you know what you want, the online version is probably all you need. If you like to window shop, and to browse through large selections of products, then it's worth getting the printed version. Browsing through a catalogue off line is more fun than browsing online. But once you find a product you want to buy always check the details online for up-to-date prices and information, special offers, and alternatives.
Tesco Direct's online search facilities are more powerful than those in the paper catalogue. But the paper catalogue's contents and index pages provide useful supplements to the online techniques, as does the ability to just flick through the pages until you see something that takes your fancy!
