I think of it as that as well, and the sooner it is buried in that hole the better.

You beat me to it Ian B!

No, but neither is it their responsibility to go out of their way to deliberately try to see off other businesses.

As I've said elsewhere there is plenty of evidence that ASDA is unscrupulous in their dealings with staff, suppliers and neighbours of their stores.

Mellor Country House Charity main fundraiser event is here again, our Plant Sale.This event is on Saturday 16th and Sunday 17th May 2015, 10am until 4pm and has become very popular, growing each year into a flurry of activity for us. Order forms can be picked up from the home or sent from email, mellorcountryhou@btconnect.com and need to be returned by 9th May 2015 in time for us to place them with our grower. We sell a large variety of bedding plants, plants and shrubs, great hanging baskets of different sizes. We are renowned for the fabulous quality of our plants and our prices are extremely competitive for the area. Refreshments include tea, coffee, hot chocolate, juices and a bacon butty or an irresistible treat of one of our famous “cream teas” again at reasonable prices.

I accept most of that but local traders do have to do something to make people make that walk from ASDA and currently many of them don't they sit there expecting customers to just come to them.
As I said if it were a Booths or a waitrose not a word would have been said and I bet the objections are from those those the did not want a ASDA in the first place ..

Blimey that enormous green sign facing the Memorial Park entrance is more disgusting than I'd imagined!

Really? I didn't see the big deal when I saw what all the fuss was over.

I do though agree with you about the smiling pensioners. It is one of the first things I noticed when I went in the new ASDA!

Local Issues / Re: Drivers who pop into the Co-op garage

Possibly people who use the co-op service station instead of Tesco, Morrisons etc.,feel that any extra costs are off-set by the saving in the cost of petrol they would use to get to Tesco, Morrisons, etc.

In any case, is it any of your business where other people choose to spend their money? Hasn't this nonsense dragged on for long enough? No-one is trying to make you shop at the Co-op service station.

I think you should re read the thread or my post more carefully before you quote getting everything wrong.

I know the terms and conditions have changed e.g.  undertsand all staff must do some weekend work but the basic rate paid, I understand from a conversation I had yesterday, is higher than under the Coop regime. Might not be a lot but the staff member concerned appreciated it.

We have used the Grove Vets in New Mills for many years, and have always been very happy with their work.
