Tesco Looking To Open At Failed Pub sites

Tesco has reportedly lodged hundreds of planning applications to cash in on the failure of pubs and rival retailers. According to the Daily Mail, Tesco has already identified ten pubs that it plans to convert into stores
Obvious advantages in that readymade licences to sell food and drink simplify the conversion process.

What if Tesco are planning to diversify into the pub business?

In fact, Tesco are uniquely positioned to combine an unwavering focus on shopper satisfaction via an enhanced shopping experience, scale advantages in Food and Drink purchasing, value for money, etc, etc (name a few?)
Then spare a thought for drinks suppliers with potential prices & terms disparities, on and off-trade...
