Campaigning to curb supermarket power

Sheffield, Abbeydale Rd

In April 2009 a new Tesco Express store on Abbeydale Rd, Sheffield opened despite dozens of objection letters and two petitions with more than 1,100 signatories.

In August 2009, the Star reported that local traders have had their worst fears confirmed as sales have fallen.
