Haven't we had enough of these small supermarkets (this is Morrisons version of the Tesco Metro and Sainsbury Local) carpet bombing us and one another with their poxy little shops?
Honestly guys, the market for food isn't getting any bigger, all you're doing is shifting market share around. So Morrisons creates 30 jobs - but how many does Tesco end up losing? Or the Budgen up the road if its business is affected? This is a nil game, it adds very little to the economy of Teddington.

Morrisons though don't rip you off to the same extent of Marks & Spencer's and Tesco's who mark up everything by about 10% to 20% for being in a town centre location.

So this will be good news for those who have to watch the pennies, and of course for the staff who will now be employed in a former empty shop.

If it's anything like the Morrisons in Twickenham it won't be there long! There are more staff in Morrisons in Twickenham than customers, many items are more expensive than Tesco and it doesn't have any of the offers that Morrisons advertise because its a small branch. Not much good at all really.

What a shame we couldn't have had an indoor market instead.

I agree with Twickenham Resident, the new store is just like the one in Twickenham. It carries the same stock as Tesco's, a narrower selection and is more expensive. Given Tesco's past ruthless squashing of all competition (from bakeries to deli's). It wont be long before Morrisons is gone. Poor market research on their part. Although I notice that a 'London Health Store' is about to open on broad street. Lets hope Tesco's don't put them out of business.

Initially I thought this would be good - anything that breaks Tescos monopoly is good! Having visited, I was very dissappointed - basically readymeals and snacks. As for the 20 jobs - there will only be 20 if the staff are part time, and how many jobs will go at other shops.
