Some typical inane drivel from Duke Fame
You will see that the Yes campaign is against a Hypermarket too, but not against something appropriately sized there to compete with the co-op. Only an idiot would argue that we need a Tesco Express or Asda Supercentre in Marple. Indeed I have pledged on facebook to run naked down Market Street if such a thing happens, so may as well repeat this vow here.  8)
The thought of this will help the NO campaign no end  ;D

If people don't like the coop why are you using it, why don't you shop at Spar or Premier for basics like a lot of people do    Check out New Shop at Rosehill post and you will see people shop at Premier to save money

That is just a ridiculous and pointless post MM.... You can not get a weekly food shop from either the spar or Premier! I go there for bread and milk, because their price is fair, unlike the co-op 2 litre milk cost me £1.64 yesterday, kicked myself at the til because I could of got 2 for £2 at the spar.... but the rest of my shopping I cant get from the spar.
Help!! my head is spinning with the price of fish, Correct me if I am wrong.I can't see in the above posts where Miss M suggested you could get a weekly food shop at Premier or Spar.From what I can see, or have I missed something?Miss M mentions basics and Tina agrees that's what she buys.So what is Miss M saying sorry for in a later post? My head has been Duke Famed :'(

aww Trixie dont be a spoil sport I was actually 'milking' the sorry from her then! first time she has said it to me :p ..

No joking asside, ... my point was she said to read the post about the new shop at rose hill which I believe is a closed topic now. That people was shopping there as it was cheaper, I was saying it was a pointless post as it wasnt along the lines of the conversation on this topic.

Some stuff

I do see your point on the coops monopoly. The coops usp is it's  ethical approach but not everyone appreciates paying the premium.

I am saying there is a realistic cost saving alternative to the hypermarket.

I also believe the coop can save itself by inviting a supermarket to take it's existing property which will help counter the YES folk

I think I am the proud starter (albeit inadvertedly) of the fastest growing thread in Marple website history! It is getting a bit confusing though  :)

Duke you are being very rude tonight.

I would say I'm offended that you've only noticed tonight!

 :o >:( ;D If you're not careful I'm going to stick my tongue out at you . . . :P

I'm getting offended for you, don't think its anyones business how many children we have etc... making rude comments like that is just making him look silly.

I agree, if everyone is working and can afford it, it's no business of mine & therefore a choice, ultimately a lifestyle choice.

. I think I am missing something here the issue is very emotive on both sides !  But I will not have it turned into a class war because we have single mums, pensioners , low income families in the NO campaign and they are not pleading poverty so I think we all need to keep it real, or I will be working lots of overtime  ;D

I am a single mum, i am not pleading poverty, I am saying that i stuggle to buy all the things that are needed. I grow my own veg and make my own juice. I am willing to have the added traffic across from my house, not happy about it, but willing so that i can make regular savings. This is real. Maybe they are not pleading poverty because they have enough money to pay the prices in Marple or get a home delivery.

There are ethical problems about disposable nappies that perhaps the co-op is correct in charging a premium for the environmental damage. Have you considered re-usable?

My daughter was in reusable nappies from birth but eventually i had to stop. Replacing them is costly as is the nappy bin and sanitising liquid.

Prior to the announcement of the proposed plans for Hibbert Lane, was there a campaign or facebook page asking for a new supermarket in or was there the outcry about the Co-op?
How many years has the Co-op been the main shop in Marple?

A new supermarket would be a convenience and is not a necessity, is that convenience worth the effect
it will have on the Hibbert Lane area and centre as a whole?  

Exactly what I've been thinking since the "Yes" campaign started. Very well said!

Well, the No campaign (and I commend it absolutely for its passion and its energy) brought the whole possibility and concept of a new supermarket in Marple to all of us by shining a light on the goings on at CAMSFC. We'd never dream such a thing could be possible due to lack of land previously. Then the No campaign (less commendably) got its strategy wrong - in my humble opinion - and got a lot of people's backs up due to scare mongering and hectoring. The 'Yes' campaign was born out all of this. That's my take on it anyway for what it's worth.

I think he's just on a bit of a wind up mission Tina. I am taking the bait admittedly but not offended by it.
