The ext has been put on hold by the "Tesco powers that Be" they are reviewing their decision later this week/early next week. They do not think that the new Aldi store will have much impact on them as a business so they are in no rush at the moment.

It would be nice if they would re-open the entrance from Brooks Road to Tesco, fenced off as part of the supposed development.
If they don't, there is a risk that I shall be distracted by the shiny new Aldi, and never make it all the way round to Tesco. I hear Aldi compete very effectively on both price and quality.
Demolition of the old industrial units was of course urgent; otherwise business rates would have had to be paid on them.

I have been in Aldi in Brighton. They have a vast range of goods packaged and named so that they are extremely similar to recognised brands. I am surprised that they get away with it. I tried a couple of items and they were indistinguisable from the recognised brand. They sell some odd things for a supermarket as one-offs too.........I bought a 24 litre compressor!

If Tesco really think that Aldi will have no impact on them they are very stupid. I estimate that i spend over £5000 pa in Tesco but like many people i have absolutely no sense of loyalty to them and in fact look forward to not going there. If Aldi is able to compete on price and quality which seems will be the case i will only go to tesco for the cheap clothes and electrical goods which will presumably be in the new extension and i currently have to go to Hollingbury for. i don't think i will be the only one

Are Tesco's still flying seasonal veg in from Timbuktu? Use local producers FFS, as I have learnt is the way to end a demand! Best. Peter Byron.

Tesco manager told me that they are seven to eight weeks behind and that it will not open until June next year. They did have some special surveys to see what wild-life may be affected, and the final layout of the store, and what lines to stock has not yet been determined. Meanwhile...Hallo Aldi!

Get to the Farmers Market, Sainsburys or Waitrose or indeed grow your own, forget the rest other than to buy Booze, then it is acceptable, trust me. Best, Peter

Bigger telcos, would it not be better to give better service for the customers in the space they have got now.There appears to be too many chiefs and not enough Indians.
