Tesco store decision

The Oxford Times: . .

Oxford City Council will tonight decide whether Tesco will be able to convert a shop in London Road, Headington.

Tesco has applied to install an ATM cash machine, new illuminated signs and new doors on the front of the store which would create up to 20 new jobs.

It is recommended for approval.

The jobs are welcome.

Strange how Headington shops has changed into supermarket alley.

Wonder if the Old Headington crowd will complain like they used to about the number of charity shops?

It's yet another cause & effect issue.

Campaign to oust students from residential accommodation into university accommodation.

Young working adults move in as professional house sharers, this changes the market considerably. They have no access to cars or parking and the nearest large supermarkets are a 3-4 mile cycle around the ring-road.

So you have people arriving from work at 8pm who have the reasonable expectation to be able to buy groceries from a well known brand when they get home.

The big brand supermarkets are quite simply moving in to meet the needs of the local market.

In addition to the original 3 supermarkets there is already a newly opened Sainsbury's so why the need for a Tesco's as well on the other side of the road. York University has a mini supermarket on site - why couldn't Brookes have done the same rather than have Headington flooded with food shops. However its foregone conclusion that it will be approved by this council.
