Tesco Hythe dumps trolley security
2:00pm Wednesday 30th January 2013 in News
A SUPERMARKET has dumped a £100,000 decision aimed at stopping students swiping trolleys.
Tesco, on Greenstead Road, Colchester, has reverted back to standard trolleys.
It comes only a year after the company spent the money introducing coin-locked trolleys to the store.
The supermarket giant previously revealed it had been spending £3,000 a week to replace those taken from its store.
Tesco said it had reversed the decision because customers had complained they never had the correct change.
