They're determined to be head and shoulders above the competition.

Re: Tesco Buys Giraffe

On a serious note...I use Giraffe in Cambridge a lot and this is sad for everyone, except the owners of Giraffe.  Everyone is worried that Tesco will change the look, work ethos, music ( a very important part of the atmosphere) even changing coffee suppliers will destroy it -  in fact giraffe will be no more, except in name only. Very sad, very worrying.

Re: Tesco Buys Giraffe

Tesco already own 49% of  Harris + Hoole coffee shops so no doubt they will rationalise their coffee sources.  They didn't publicise their ownership of H+H but one of the Sunday papers announced it some time ago.
