Campaigning to curb supermarket power

Magdalen Street, Oxford


In April 2010, Tesco announced it was to open its first city centre Express store in the former Solus Lighting shop in St Aldate’s. The Covered Market Traders’ Association warned it could threaten independent businesses in the city centre. Tesco lodged planning and licensing applications with the City Council including permission for a new entrance, illuminated signs and a cash machine and an alcohol licence. The store opened in August 2010.
