Re: New Tesco Store

We have been floating lots of ideas and they seem to be being accepted by the other Councillors. Talk of doing away with the folly of the pavilions, at least on Peel Street with the moving of the Bus Station. We think french type wheeled stalls (the wooden ones you see) with folding sides and colourful awnings may be ideal. Rented when wanted, located where suitable, stored securely from vandals and thieves cutting costs, they would be an attractive alternative to the less charming empty rows of pavilion stalls we have now and reveal once again the magnificence of the Market Hall stone work.

It really saddens me that we're going to become another corporate ghost town.

Re: New Tesco Store

people already go out of town to tesco anyway so i think its a great idea, i know a few of my friends take the bus to the one in Haslingden, i know they will welcome it

in Blackburn we have had all the major supermarkets for years and Blackburn hasnt died a death yet

Accrington has been dying a death for years, it has nothing at all to do with the upcoming supermarket, that will bring people INTO the town, so when people say it will be bad for Accy, i say its a load of testicles

Re: New Tesco Store

This week I have divided my fortnightly delivery between Tesco and Asda, because both were offering me 10 discount by voucher.

If you want to save on grocery shopping you need to organise your freezer and storecupboard, plan for needs for 2 weeks ahead, buy in bulk where you can, and use voucher numbers (available at other online sites) which will give you a discount of more than the delivery charge.

When more people realise they can do this, it wont matter where the new supermarkets are built

i'm with flashy on this, once a week i go blackburn fer tesco, to me the people that gripe have a vested interest. as i said before "Tesco" certainly didn't do Burnley much harm.

Don't think it is Tesco doing the work Mick, think it is for the new rail/bus station

You are right, tesco is going to be built on the disused "skillcentre" site across from the eagle st car park where all the work is going on at the moment. Bernadette is right, the work going on at the moment is for the new rail and bus interchange. According to the Accrington Observer website, Tesco will be having talks with their contractors shortly so it wont be long before the whole area is like a giant building site on Eagle street!!

Flashy I think you are wrong. Blackburn born and bread.
I went into the market on Friday of last week and was disgusted at the demise of Blackburn Market and of the Mall. Empty stalls in both.
I think the same applies to Accrington.
Supermarkets control the trade and buying clout which is outside the the reach of local traders and they cannot compete.
Tesco, Asda, Morrison's, Sommerfields and Sainsbury's. with the lesser extent Lidle and Alde do not give the local traders a chance.
Can you say that local produce is sold or offered for sale in these outlets?
My suggestion would be that if a new Supermarket with all the trimmings, car parks etc., were submitted for planning permission then there should be built on the complex outlets for local traders say 20, rent free.
They would be subjected to council tax and the Council would not suffer.
Silly suggestion I know but worth thinking about.
Dream on Royboy.
