LeShop.ch is a subsidiary of the Migros union of cooperatives and Swiss market leader in the internet retail trade. In 2013, the online supermarket sold groceries to a regular clientele of some 50,000
households and realised a turnover of 158.1 million Swiss francs. The company provides a unique assortment of Migros products and brands.
Groceries include deep-frozen foods, convenience goods
and home & hobby products. Deliveries are made nationwide directly to the customer's house door (95 % of all households). Optionally, the customers can also pick up their order at so-called drives and at
selected train stations.
As soon as a customer places an order with LeShop.ch, customerrelated order picking is triggered off. In a first step, the groceries are packed in paper bags and then, for protection during transportation,
into solid containers. In a next step, the bins are palletised and dispatched by the Swiss parcel post. After the goods have been delivered to the final customer, the distribution containers are collected and returned to LeShop.ch

It is the second-largest retailer in the world measured by profits (after Walmart) and third-largest retailer in the world measured by revenues (after Walmart and Carrefour). It has stores in 12 countries across Asia, Europe and North America and is the grocery market leader in the UK.
Tesco operates a "good, better & best" policy for its own-brand products, including the upmarket "Finest", mid-range Tesco brand and low-price "Value" encompassing several product categories such as food, beverage, home, clothing, Tesco Mobile and financial services.
Besides the normal shopping in their retail stores, Tesco also offer "Home Delivery" or "Click and Collect" in their grocery business.
