Tesco recreate 1960's store at Goodwood

This year Tesco, who are a major sponsor of Goodwood Revival weekend are going all out to give customers the most immersive retro experience to date. Tesco will recreate a 1960’s store stocked with authentic products; showcase a lovingly restored 1950s Tesco delivery van as well as selling specially produced retro toys and games. The delivery van was recently seen touring central London before delivering toys to Great Ormond Street Hospital’s on site school.

For the first time ever F&F will also be setting up shop at Goodwood launching their new vintage inspired Duchess range. At the event, F&F will have an exclusive marquee staffed by a team of buyers and designers who will be showing some of F&F’s catwalk ranges and giving styling advice. Customers will be able take advantage of styling tips as they try and buy, as well as talk to the team about the range and its inspiration.

Euphorium bakery will also be making their first appearance at Goodwood offering retro revelers a range of sweet treats. They’ll be offering fresh samples and have created an exclusive Goodwood éclair, which was popular at the time, to mark the occasion.

The main Tesco store will sell much loved products such as Treets, Marathon bars, Opal Fruits, Tunnocks’ tea cakes and traditional cream soda which have been specially remade and will be available to buy in their 60s-style branding. Tesco has also worked with independent toy supplier House of Marbles to offer customers authentic toys and games from the era.

Adam Kirk, Senior Marketing Manager at Tesco said: “We’ve really gone all out this year. We’ve got a great history and lots to draw on so we love recreating our 1960’s store, and it’s been great getting other brands involved too. We know that visitors and customers love visiting our shop and it’s great to see how nostalgic people feel when they see the old Tesco logo above the shop door. It’s a real feel good event and we can’t wait to welcome customers into our store.’
