U Select (Chinese: U購Select超級市場), also known as U Select by Tesco is a chain of supermarkets in Hong Kong operated by China Resources Vanguard, in partnership with Tesco. At least one third of the products sold in the store come from Tesco.

Features[edit]

  • Around one third of products sold in the store are from Tesco or its international operations including Tesco Lotus and former arm Homeplus.
  • Shelf edge labelling indicating the origin of the goods.
  • Pricing of goods is slightly different compared to sister chain Vanguard.

History[edit]

On 18 August 2013, China Resources Enterprise's supermarket chain Vanguard and British supermarket Tesco signed a "memorandum of understanding", intending to set up a joint venture interest group in mainland China, Hong Kong and Macau, operating hypermarkets, supermarkets, convenience stores, liquor stores and cash and carry businesses. China Resources Enterprise took an 80% share and Tesco took a 20% share.[1]

In April 2015, China Resources opened the first U Select supermarkets, with the first two stores opening on 18 April 2015 in Prince Edward Road West and Bellagio Mall.[2]

In June 2015, the third branch opened on Main Street East, Shau Kei Wan.

On 17 September 2015, the tenth branch (the second outlet in Kowloon) opened at Hip Wo Street in Cheung Wo Court, Kwun Tong.
