    Default asda

    it was said all along that tesco would not build another superstore in caithness, the land has been bought for no other reason than to keep asda out of thurso,

    on a brighter note i hear asda are building a new store somewhere in the south of england ??

    Latest arguement:

    "Tesco shouldn't be allowed to build another place in Thurso because it's not Asda"

    I think tescos is better than asda anyways....

    Have you got a Asda Walmart up there? Well I have two near me and they knock spots off Tescos all the time, I also have a Morrisons, which compares to Asda, and a Sainsburys which still beats Tesco.

    I don't see what's wrong with tesco?


    One of my tutors once said she was against them because they are going for world domination.... In that they will soon sell everything and buy out every company so that THEY can set the price.... I lol'd hahahah!

    It really does anger me that a supermarket chain (whoever they are) can buy land to stop another from building there.

    At present the Mart site is an eyesore, which is just a magnet for kids and vandals. It won't be long until some kid gets injured on the site, especially as there's nothing better to do, now the cinema has closed down.

    I am twenty. I'm not a kid. Haha.

    Me and my mate used the mart area for riding the bmx's about the place and it was allright...

    To look at it though it is absolutely minging.

    I also think the closing of liquid is terrible! I wonder what they'll build next?

    There is nothing wrong with Tesco per se, it is simply that here in Caithness they are a monoply position as far as supermarkets are concerned.

    Some competition from another decent sized supermarket would in all likelihood have resulted in a better deal for the consumer.

    If they build a large tesco's at the mart, will they be leaving the original location ? opening up for another take over of that store ?

    A tesco employee told me that they would be using the "old" tesco as a site to store goods so they don't have to rely on deliveries as often.

    Wether that is true or not I dont know...

    because it is unethical and causing a monopoly that they can then use to lead us around by the small bits. it is well known that any town that tesco gets a hold of, has a very hard time getting an asda as well. personally, if they have bought the old mart, then in all fairness they should be made to do something with it.. even if its just turning into a park.

    Isnt it a ploy from the council, selling the land to Tesco knowing that they wont build, to stop Asda from coming up here.
    Thats what I always thought.
