Tactics opposed

EVEN though Tesco has nearly 32 per cent of all grocery sales in the UK, it is never satisfied and it seems nothing can stop its expansion.

The tactics are often devious, like the timing of the Goring Road application, land and building purchases to prevent competition, building premises larger than allowed by local planners and opposing the opening of other stores (as at Ely).

We have some excellent local shops in Goring Road, especially the bakers and greengrocers, and I fear for their future if Tesco opens there.

I do not shop at any of its stores because I am strongly against its tactics – I urge your readers to support local shops.
