Tesco, the UK’s largest retailer, plans to build four ‘mini-villages’ in southeast England in an effort to expand its retail reach. The villages will feature groups of homes, all near a Tesco store, that customers can purchase through the company’s real estate agent service, securing a mortgage through its banking arm and fitting it out with Tesco products bought on one of the company’s credit cards.

“Through these developments we are able to invest and create jobs in areas that many other developers cannot and will not,” a Tesco spokesman said.
