Campaigning to curb supermarket power

Rhyl, Denbighshire

More than 1,500 people signed a petition opposing plans to build a 371 sq m Tesco Express at the former Esplanade service station on Coast Road.

A Tesco Extra opened in Rhuddlan Road in November 2008. Residents and traders feel the store would create huge traffic problems and congestion as well as draw away trade from existing businesses.
