Tesco's: It's a positive move

When looking at the Midweek Herald the other day, I read about Mr Diamond retiring and Diamond's closing down.

It was said that his retirement had nothing to do with the proposed relocation of Tesco. Without meaning to sound disrespectful, why would it?

Pretty much all of the products you go to Diamonds for you can get in Tesco anyway! Just because Tesco are proposing to move to a larger premises does not mean that people who live near the town centre and stroll into town to get their newspaper are now going to walk out of the town centre to go to Tesco!

Also, from where are these people who are opposed to relocation? Co-op and Somerfield are hardly supermarkets to write home about ... nine times out of 10 you can't even get a pint of milk!

And as for Marks and Spencer's, how many people in Honiton can afford to do a week's shopping in there every week? I know I certainly can't!

Why can't the people of Honiton see that this is a positive move.

Honiton is not going to become a ghost town because of Tesco's, Honiton is going to become a ghost town because the number of under 30s is going to decrease and the number of over 60s is going to increase!

People who want Honiton to have a positive future should be supporting the proposed relocation!
