Tesco Metro shops in Wimbledon's SW19 postcode have had the "o" in Tesco replaced with a tennis-ball for the tournament. Its store in Dunblane, Andy Murray's home town, has had equivalent therapy.
David Genower, shop supervisor for the Wimbledon Metro, stated: “With the Uk summer hotting up recently together with tennis beginning, we’ve made certain our store features every thing customers need. This consists of offering great provides on products such as for instance liquid, wine and Pimms to strawberry and ointment tastings waiting for you. We’ve also really experienced the character by changing the ‘O’ to a tennis ball on our store sign.”
The supermarket said it expected to offer 1, 400 tonnes of strawberries through the tournament (that is the weight of 24, 000 tennis balls). It also reckons it's going to sell 21 bottles of Pimms every min.
