Ulverston is on the verge of becoming a ghost town.
We wish to see the new development of Sainsburys in Ulverston.
It will create jobs, keep shopping local within the town, attract new business, bring Ulverston up to date and revive our dying market town.
Ulverston needs an injection of life into it.
We feel that its about time that we had a decent affordable supermarket in our town.
Sainsbury's want to build a 3,773 square metre store at Steart Farm off Wedmore Road in Cheddar. The store will also host a cafe and will be open from 7am until 10pm.
Cheddar is a rural village with numerous supermarkets already available just a short drive away. The open, beautiful, landscape in this part of Cheddar will not be enhanced by the erection of an ugly new supermarket, service yard and car park. Sainsbury's will rely on visits by cars as bus services past the store are infrequent. There will be significant negative impact on traffic congestion and road safety. The paths near the proposed store are narrow or nonexistent and the scheme does not propose any improvements, in fact there is nothing in this scheme to benefit Cheddar or its residents.
Village centre shops, as well as those in surrounding villages will suffer from trade leakage and some may close. Cheddar residents already leave the village for their bulk shopping so that they can use a wider range of facilities in nearby towns, not just the supermarket, and for many residents those trips will continue even if a supermarket is built here.
Many people have asked Moo Free if we can make our chocolate more readily available. Many of you have asked us to stock Moo Free in Sainsbury's.
We would like to assure you that we are trying and have been trying for almost a year. Unfortunately, so far we have had no response from Sainsbury's. Not even a "sorry, we don't like Moo Free's chocolate".
Well, now is your chance to help us to help you and others like you. Sign the petition to urge Sainsbury's to stock Moo Free's chocolate. The petition will be sent to Sainsbury's on your behalf.
We are a group opposing two planning applications one by Sainsbury's and one by Tesco's to build out of town superstores in our market town, which has a population of 19,000 approximately. We believe that these stores will destroy our historic market town centre laying waste to hundreds of years of heritage within our town centre area.
An independent survey by The National Retail Forum shows that 93 individual superstore opening led to nett job losses of 25,000. This equates to 276 per store. If these two stores are built and these statistics are replicated Leek will lose 552 jobs nett.
J Sainsbury Plc (Sainsburys) owns a supermarket store located within the boundary of Knaphill village; the naming of the store was chosen as 'Sainsburys Brookwood' and has remained as such to date.
It is clearly not a Brookwood store which is reflected in the address - Redding Way, Knaphill, WOKING GU21 2QT and the naming is a continual aggravation and slight to the residents of Knaphill. Despite contacting the Customer Services department (who said it was named after the Brookwood train station) and being brought to the store managers (Peter Smith) attention (by Councillor Olly Wells), who said it was named after the Brookwood Hospital site on which the store is built, there is no apparent intention on the part of Sainsburys to correctly reflect the name of the store as Knaphill.
The store is actually built on land that was known as Knaphill Common prior to being Brookwood Hospital which has shown the level of research performed by Sainsburys prior to naming. Sainsburys has a Corporate Responsibility policy stating they will make a positive difference to their communities and be a good neighbour.
There are now literally hundreds of thousands of vegans in the UK. What we want more than anything when it comes to our food is to be able to walk into the supermarket and pick our food off the shelf just like everyone else. Tesco provide a full and varied range of vegetarian alternatives including burgers, sausages, vege bacon and pies, yet ALL of these products contain milk and/or eggs, meaning the entire range in unsuitable for vegans.
If it costs an extra 20p per pack to make them vegan, we would pay it. If it costs an extra 50p per packet to have egg substitute rather than egg in the burgers, we would pay it.
I want to get as many signatures as possible to send to Tescos (I chose Tesco as they are the largest and most recogniseable supermarket chain in the UK) to show them there is great support for them to convert their vegetarian range to vegan and we will simply queue up at the frozen section to buy their vegan range if only they gave us the chance to do so.
