A SHOP ACROSS the water in England is making international headlines today – as the world has just discovered its rather audacious name.

Yes, the small shop in South London calls itself Tesos Express.

And the branding looks familiar as well

The shop has been going strong as Tesos Express for over a year now, but today The Evening Standard covered the questionable name change because of a rebrand – bringing it to everyone’s attention.

Queried as to what the real Tesco will think of this, an employee told the Standard:

It has been like this now for more than one year so I think we will be okay.

Legal experts have warned that the real Tesco might be getting in touch – and today’s worldwide coverage might not have helped.

It also turns out that Tesos Express is somewhat of a local cult hero of a shop:

“if you ever feel upset, remember there’s a shop near me called the Tesos express.”

It seems like anyone who has walked past it has a comment to make

And the gags were quick to come

Our fondness in Ireland for calling it ‘Tescos’ would cause even more confusion.
