With Tesco looking at garden centres (Dobbies) how long before they move into DIY, perhaps Focus or Homebase?

Sainsburys learnt to it's cost that moving into completely different markets is not easy.

Perhaps Tesco will do well with Dobbies (a garden centre run by a house elf?) but they could just as well experience an expensive failure as Sainburys did with Homebase

Tesco is moving into the estate agency business in our area...:-)

What's the betting that in a few years time Tesco will go through a bad patch and sell off all the non-core business?

Tesco will eventually be the new government with Asda & Sainsbury's as the opposition parties. Written in jest, but with the things they get involved in, who knows?

It'll not only be far, far better run, but also return a profit for taxpayers...:-)
