TESCO EVERY LITTLE HURTS
Sorry for all the people who don’t know where on earth Ashby is but this is really just to those that do. I just wanted to say that I encourage everybody to forget the new Tesco and carry on shopping locally, I will not be shopping there and will keep getting my weekly shop from the places where I have built up a relationship with the people who work there, and who try where possible to source local produce.
I have talked before about shopping locally and don’t want to go over it again, but I fear that this new store is going to effect the already struggling small businesses.
Tesco now controls 30% of the grocery market in the UK. In 2006, the supermarket chain announced over £2.2 billion in profits. Growing evidence indicates that Tesco’s success is partly based on trading practices that are having serious consequences for suppliers, farmers and workers worldwide, local shops and the environment.
