Tesco extends online delivery to Balaton area

UK hypermarket chain Tesco has launched a summertime online delivery service on the south coast of Lake Balaton from June 1.

The service, available until the end of the holiday season, September 2, is available first in Siófok, Balatonvilágos, and Balatonaliga, but will be extended to other towns.

Orders will be delivered on the following day for a fee of Ft 500-900, depending on the time of the delivery.

Separately, Tesco said it is working to solve the problem of a shortage of the supply of frozen food products. News site 24.hu showed pictures of empty iceboxes.

Tesco said the problems were due to changes in its logistics system and a change in suppliers, leading to delivery problems.
