What will happen to current Tesco stores and your Clubcard points?

According to Tesco Malaysia, all offline stores will be rebranded as Lotus’s Store in the next few months. However, you are still able to access Tesco’s products via their official e-store website.

If you happen to have a Clubcard or Tesco vouchers, e-vouchers, gift vouchers, or coupons, you can still redeem it following the validity period stated on it.

However, if you wish to purchase Tesco-branded products, you will need to act fast as Tesco is undergoing a full-scale review and rebranding, meaning that it will be around for a limited time only.

A brand new shopping experience

Thailand’s all favorite food brand – CP Group, which is the mother company of Lotus’s, can be found in all Lotus’s stores, which means we will see more of its ready-to-eat meals.
