    Ah, is that why they had the big advertising board outside of Tesco this week? Made me laugh - thought they were just being cheeky

    I'm outraged by this blatant Tescophobia, I demand something. Dunno what, just something.

    I do not understand all this Hype and why anyone wants to get shopping delivered all that distance from Asda. Personally I would rather not give Wallmart my cash.

    Deep into that darkness peering, long I stood there, wondering, fearing, doubting, dreaming dreams no mortal ever dared to dream before.

    Shame, I think it'll hit Wal*Mart quite badly.

    Wow so glad asda will deliver even though they can't be bothered to open a store employ the people fuel the economy all the usual things you'd expect from a business ! Plus having had a multitude of supermarkets in my old town can't say they make a huge difference. You can't drop much of a straw between all the big stores except on price which they all like to keep nice and confusing then are nice enough to give you a voucher for your next shop or hey mug I've overcharged you and now here's my blackmail voucher so you have to come back to be treated fairly ! I'd prefer they open a store,employ some people, put a bit back and stop ripping me off. Lidls and tesco at least are employing local people.

    Ooh, I'm sure thre is a thread on here about Tesco Land Banking and allegedly being in cahoots with councillors & planners etc. preventing Asda Walmart from opening up.

    I'd be quite happy to have Asda deliver my shopping to Wick, and travel from Thurso to pick it up. It's a real shame Tesco are so afraid of the competition that they will do anything to prevent them from encroaching on their turf.

    I spend a bit of time in Inverness when I'm off work, and much prefer Asda. Nothing political etc. but I just like Asda better.

    I won't be using it. I would rather use tesco. Even if its a bit more I would rather use a company that employs locals.

    That's a thought, and taking it a step further, if Tesco weren't so anticompetitive and an Asda opened up here, perhaps there would be more jobs than there are now? Just a thought.

    Asda have a poor rep for using people on an 8-hour job per person, per week. Exactly the same as Poundstretcher and Homebase. Opening up here would provide a much wanted service and give many locals employment but to what end if they are all part-time, 8 hours per week? You can all breath a sigh of relief/despair because there just isn't any suitable sites for Asda to buy and open up on
