Great for the people who have got jobs there.
~
Unfortunately it means that Tesco take even more of a hold on the retail market.
~
The way they treat there suppliers is outrageous. Many companies that had contracts with Tesco have had to close down because they could not afford to continue when Tesco demanded lower prices. More and more of Tesco's products are being sourced from outside the UK.
~
Creating a few low paid jobs in their stores does not compensate for the hundreds and thousands of jobs that are lost when the suppliers are dropped because they cannot afford to meet Tescos demands.
~
We will regret this in 5, 10, 15 years time. But Tescos won't mind, they will continue to make billions in profits each year as our agriculture and industry decline, to be replaced with a few shelf stacking and till jobs.

Yes, how nice for the other independent businesses who can't match Tesco's buying power, nice to see that the staff clearly reflect that of the wider community.

I like the idea of a retail store going in the place of the old pub - however Tesco seems to be dominating all corners of towns and cities across the country - what does the competition commission have to say about the Tesco-isation of Britain - surely there should be more equal express stores for Asda, Morrisons and Sainsbury’s - Why do we always have to have a Tesco express store dotted in areas around the town?

When Morrison’s bought out Safeway – The competition commission did not allow to Morrisons to have the old Safeway Store near Bath road in Slough - instead Sainsbury’s took it!

No doubt the creation of jobs is good news for the local community.
I am not against Tesco - but too many Tesco's stores is a few too many - this will really affect the smaller retailers - at least the Kebab van will be busier

I live near the new Tesco store. It is better than the eyesore that was the Turnpike Pub.
One stop has closed, we were told by the staff in there that they were all going to to be transferred to the new Tesco.

Just a shame Tesco Express usually stocks crap and that you don't get much of a choice for lunch.

Please stop whining. I live on cressex road and now i can buy better produce much cheaper just around the corner, and with staff that speak english!

It was exactly what i needed and wanted and i doubt you'd find a single new road or cressex road resident who would disagree


My father also lived in the Turnpike as the Plumridge's owned it in the 60's so i admit it was sad for him to see it go

Tescos is rank. It is a blot on the retail universe.
It fools people into thinking they cannot live without it and all the time is killing off individualism and choice.

So if all of you Tesco fans don't mind filling your bodies full of crud then go for it.
If you don't care about farmers and suppliers being fleeced by this giant parasite then go ahead.
Me, I would rather go without ( and have done!) than depend on that so called supermarket for anything.
I live in a small town and shop locally at Budgens ( and believe me you can get some good deals). I also go to either Morrisons or Sainsburys. There is a Tesco Express BUT it is more expensive than Budgens and I would rather not go there anyway.

I have found my local Tesco express has been a life changing experience for me. Its the central hub of my village and has brought the community back together. I don't know how I can thank Tesco enough. They bring in good produce, on site baked fresh bread and good deals are there to be had. I really can't imagine life without one now...

With staff that spoke English??? They spoke English, did you bother even try to converse with them? Probably not!

And the same staff are moving to the new Tesco's, are you going to avoid them there too??

Good luck!

If you walk into the Loudwater superstore you will regularly be confronted by punnets of fruit on "half price offer" at £2. The simple fact that you never see punnets on sale at the alleged full price of £4 never seems to bother anyone, least of all Trading Standards.

You may also remember that a pint of silver top milk delivered to your door went off after 24 hours, but of course Tesco and their suppliers are not radiating the cr*p out of our milk supply, it just lasts a week or two now because someone improved ol' Louis Pasteur's technique a little bit, honest!

For those hooked on the two or three aisles of ready made meals do yourself a favour: come off them for a month and eat everything freshly prepared. After the month, come back to a ready meal and pierce the film lid once with a fork. That little odour alone will make you wretch and you'll then realise what you've been doing to yourself for so many years.

Punchy,
You write with a the faint flavour of having fully felt the fiendish free trade fiddling of the super-market beastly behemoths.
.
These seemingly unstoppable monsters bestride the land like rampaging rapacious Godzillas intent on squashing or conquering all opposition whilst simultaneously sucking gullible consumers into their Machiavelian masticating maws.
.
Their day will come . Everything has a shelf life.
