London news Hidden meaning behind some of the largest supermarket's names Uk news
PremierLeague-News.Com - Many of the supermarket giants had humble beginnings
PremierLeague-News.Com - Breaking Sport Transfer News ! Most people could name the largest supermarkets in the UK without much problem, but how many would know the meaning behind their names? They are all household names that slip off the tongue but when it comes to the history of why supermarkets chose their name then people might be a little more stumped. A lot of the supermarkets started their lives as much smaller shops or stalls with little thought that they would grow to the huge sizes we see today. Some supermarkets actually date back more than 100 years and have an extremely rich heritage where businesses were handed down to sons and daughters. Tesco, Aldi, Asda, Lidl, Sainsbury's and Waitrose all have reasons why their names evolved as they did. Here is what MyLondon discovered: Waitrose It was back in 1904 when Waitrose first made its appearance on the high street in Acton. Wallace Wyndham Waite, Arthur Rose and David Taylor came together to open a shop a wide range of groceries. After a couple of years David Taylor left the business leaving just Waite and Rose to run the business. According to Waitrose the store joined the John Lewis Partnership in October 1937.

Tesco According to CornwallLive Jack Cohen, the son of Jewish migrants from Poland, founded Tesco in 1919 when he began to sell war-surplus groceries from a stall in Hackney. The Tesco brand first appeared in 1924. The name came about after Cohen bought a shipment of tea from Thomas Edward Stockwell. He made new labels using the initials of the supplier's name (TES), and the first two letters of his surname (CO), forming the word TESCO.
