Campaigning to curb supermarket power

Weston, Bath

Residents believe that Tesco plans to increase its presence on our small local village high street in Weston, Bath. Tesco took over the small Somerfield store a couple of years ago and opened an Express store. It has now secured the lease on a neighbouring carpet shop and a small Chinese takeaway which have been family run businesses for many years. The plan now is to open a bigger store.

Weston High street is pretty small scale and is in real danger of being wholly dominated by the blue stripes of Tesco. A key to any local high street is the variety of retail outlets and this is being compromised.
