Does Seaton need a Tesco store? Without doubt it does. It needs a company like them to kick start this sleepy place.Seaton is great to live in, the people kind, services very good, however, if the town is to take its place in the coastal scheme, it needs to move, get a grip on reality, realise that companies like Tesco moving in will be followed by other quality stores.Houses will be built, employment for younger people, who will, hopefully, buy or rent the houses.
