Another Tesco in London stopped – campaigning works!

Following the recent defeat for Tesco in Ireland comes the news that another proposed Tesco store in Tolworth (London) has also been stopped.

ThisIsMoney reports that:

“Plans to build a superstore and 662 homes at Tolworth, near Kingston, south west London, have been withdrawn in the face of all-out opposition from residents and shopkeeper. […]
The decision comes after a Competition Commission’s report highlighted concerns about the emergence of ‘Tesco towns’ where only one company can prosper.”

This appears to be a very similar situation to Mill Road, With a large Tesco within 2 miles.

We hope that Tesco will do right thing and withdraw their plans for a Mill Road Tesco in Cambridge.

ThisIsMoney also reported earlier this year on the ‘Sly tricks of the supermarkets‘.
