Is Tesco taking over?
After record Christmas sales Tesco remains on course to make profits of £2bn this financial year.
The supermarket giant helped achieve this with 100 Tesco Extra stores which combine food and non-food items such as clothes, health products and DVDs.
The tills at Tesco currently take one in every eight pounds spent in British shops.
