Private-label software

Tesco will introduce later this month a line of private-label software, marking another foray into non-grocery categories, and also a further extension of the private-label domain.

Tesco said it would offer six packages, including office software, security systems and a photo editing tool.

Britain's biggest retailer said each title would cost less than £20, challenging what it described as the current "high" price of PC software.
In other Tesco news, the company is planning to vastly expand its overseas operations -- most notably in China and, of course, the US.
By February Tesco, which launched overseas ten years ago, will have 60 per cent of its store space abroad — and that is before it opens a store in America, a country in which Tesco has committed to spending £250 million of capital.
