Campaigning to curb supermarket power

Galashiels, Scottish Borders

Campaigners in Galashiels protested against Tesco's plans to demolish an historic component of the townscape of Galashiels for a carpark for an extended supermarket. Tesco sought a judicial review to prevent the building's listing. Campaigners celebrated in June 2006 when Tesco offered to rebuild the building in a different location.
