In the ASDA document, it states that it will be "slightly" bigger than the Co-op.
25,000 sq ft sales area as opposed to 17,000 sq ft.
My maths isn't brilliant but that is just less than 50% bigger, so a bit more than slightly bigger.
The questionnaire on the back is an embarrassment.
5 Would the residents have of Marple like cheaper petrol ? No we would like it more expensive if possible please, at least £1.50 a Litre.
6. Asda will safe guard the open space. They have no choice in that do they?
There is no mention of a Pharmacy as mentioned in previous posts.
I have posted my comments regarding the "alleged" reduction traffic on more than one occasion.
Asda say they only think it will reduce traffic!!!I still disagree.
"Local towns have thrived when a new supermarket has been built".
Bredbury hasn't thrived since Morrisons was built, Bredbury has no centre, there is just more Traffic Jams which are caused by people driving through it partly to get to & from Morrisons.
Hyde, since Asda was built there, the market has nearly vanished and many more smaller shops have closed
or become fast food places.
I honestly don't think we need another supermarket, maybe the ideal solution would be that Asda would take over the Co-op site ?
Admittedly I am biased given where I live, with both the expansion of Buxton and the "proposed" Asda
have I believe give a negative effect on my neighbourhood.
The New Supermarket is a convenience and not a necessity, it does not mean our quality of life will improve or our town will be a better place to live.
