On the 3rd page of the NWN.

Do we really need another Tesco in Newbury?

I don't believe we do, but it will be quite good as i live near where the new store will be based.

If you don't know comet, harveys & sleepmasters are closing & will be replaced by a Tesco, hoping to open in summer 2010

Don't forget that Tesco's own OneStop as well. I think the whole point is to squeeze out other businesses as well. Then the next stop would be to conquer the world wink.gif

I guess it makes sense as then they have two big stores at opposite ends of Newbury.

Apparently it will not be a supermarket.
It is going to be selling household items and furniture, electrical items, jewellery, DIY, sports items, toys and games as featured in the Tesco Direct Catalogue.

According to the NWN, they spoke to Tesco & it's going to mainly sell food

They'll need to get planning permission if they want to sell food at that location.

Lots of empty sites around the country like old MFI stores, remain empty as local planners
will not ease restrictions and allow food retailers to take over.

But I guess Tesco may well get green light.

Er? Another Tesco? We already have three in a three mile radius (if you count the one in North Thatcham). Tesco's land bank is colossal - but do we have to become another Tesco Town? sad.gif

I don't understand why Asda or Morrisons don't try for the site? Does the Competition Commission still have teeth or do we have another of those 'done deals' which operate so successfully here in West Berks?

I've also heard that Tesco would be using the site to sell white goods, furniture etc. I can't imagine them opening two large food store in one town.

If there's an extra buck to be made. I understand there is one person on Turnpike who hasn't spent any money with them...

I know this is slightly (and only slightly) going off topic but the paper said that Tesco's will occupy Comets old store and others along there. But it didn't stay whether Comets will be moving to another local area or not. Does anybody know if they are?

Pretty weird this, I thought we didn't like nationalised or rather monopoly industries any more? USSR had GOM, we have Tesco.

Unless you've got an ear to the Prime Minister which Tesco's chief Executive has.

Of course "we" do, "we" just like them to be owned by private companies rather than us taxpayers.

What planning restrictions? Who has been prevented from setting up a food store? ALDI didn't seem to have any problems.

we don't have to become a Tesco town. But it is what the general public want.

Sorry - not sure we, the General Public, have actually been asked! I certainly haven't been. If I had, I would have expressed a wish for choice - not three stores within such close proximity owned by the same company. As a matter of interest, does anyone know why Asda & Morrisons don't seem to be interested in coming to West Berks? I'm not sure, before anyone answers' demographics' because I would say that Newbury has more than its fair share of C's and D's now!!

Just as when Tesco keep re-developing their Pinchington Lane store, they put notices up saying things like 'we are making your store better for you' - no, they are making their store better for them so that they can make more money.

It may be dressed up as 'progress' but I'm not sure if it isn't more rampant consumerism. sad.gif

I am very much in favour of a new store opening there.

I think West Berks has poor competition in grocery stores; we have no Asda or Morrison's and not really that many of the others either.

As long as it has good recycling facilities and a gas station, I welcome it.

It IS what the people want or it would not be happening.

If I / they are wrong then nobody will use it will they?
