TESCO.COM - the online grocery business of the UK supermarket giant chain - has topped annual sales of more than £500m.

The world's biggest online grocer, Tesco.com now delivers more than 110,000 orders a week, the company said in a short statement today.

And, er, that's about it. Except to say that Tesco.com was launched in 1995 and covers 96 per cent of the UK population. It also operates in South Korea, the Republic of Ireland and as Groceryworks on the West Coast of America.

Two years ago Tesco.com announced that it was profitable generating 85,000 orders a week and sales of £356m.

Last year those lifestyle gurus at Good Housekeeping described online grocery shopping as "a stress-filled chore" that can take longer to do than a trip to the supermarket. ®
