Tesco has revealed plans to open 70 in-store beauty salons by the end of 2011.

The beauty market in the UK is estimated to be worth in the region of £5bn a year.

“The beauty market is a huge opportunity. We are testing customer responses to beauty services such as threading and nail treatments,” said a Tesco spokesperson.

The concept has been trialled at three stores, and two new larger salons in the Chesterfield and Leicester stores will open by the end of this month. If they prove to be successful then Tesco could roll out the salons to 70 stores nationwide.
