Tesco trials the world's first bouncy aisles

1 Apr 2015

Supermarket puts a spring in shoppers steps by introducing new trampoline aisles to help Brits reach the top shelf.

Shoppers will soon have their weekly shop taken to a whole new level of fun as Tesco takes a leap forward in revolutionising the shopping experience with the introduction of trampoline inspired bouncy aisles, which will help people reach the top shelves more easily.

Lucy Mecklenburgh, ex-TOWIE favourite and star of the BBC’s gymnastics show Tumble, has worked with the supermarket to help develop and quality test the bouncy aisles, as well as providing trampoline training to Tesco colleagues.

Lucy says, “The bouncy aisles are not only incredibly helpful, but also add so much fun to everyday grocery shopping! On Tumble, the trampoline routines were always my favourite, so I love the new aisles. I think people will jump at the chance to use them and I can’t wait for them to be installed in my local Tesco!”

Daisy O’Farllop, Director of Aisle Operations at Tesco comments, “Introducing bouncy aisles is both a practical and fun solution to help our customers reach products on the top shelves, as well as speed up their shopping trip.

“Tesco’s patented Spring Stepper Shelf Solutions® will be fitted to the floor, running alongside the shelves, leaving space in the middle of the aisle for customers to walk down with trolleys. We initially planned to trial it in one store, but feedback has been so positive that we’re now scheduling a full roll-out of the bouncy aisles across the UK over the next 12 months.”
