    Had to have a thread on Tesco's of course.Having been open a few days, Tesco has shown itself to be substantially more community minded than any other supermarket in the area (not counting Waitrose in Goldsworth Park). The issues with the developers rumble on but the store itself appears to be an asset so far.I'm waiting to see the ongoing impact of deliveries which is snarling up traffic no end

    The store itself is pretty nice – MUCH better than co-op. doesn't seem as cheap as there main stores though but i ended up buying more than i wanted anyway lolhow long before they apply to get rid of the public toilets outside??

    All of this spend is just a marketing ploy to pull locals away from existing franchises. I remember everyone moaning that there was going to be too many supermarkets, now suddenly tesco are your best friend.

    On the question of the public toilets, the developer has planted bushes at the rear of the loos so that those living in the flats cannot see them. I am not sure if they will grown given the lack of daylight that part of Fosters Lane.

    Well since the store is here now, surely it's better to have one that invests in the village and the youth club than one that doesn't? No-one's pretedning tesco are wonderful and yeah we'd prefer independent stores in the high street but that just isn't going to happen and there ARE too many supermarkets!!
