big drew

yes I totally agree, an unwanted monopoly.....and yet no one seems to question just how Tesco always seem to manage to purchase a plot, BEFORE major plans are declared.

Perhaps they own the Planning Department...........!

the major supermarkets are amongst the largest landowners in the country. They speculatively buy lots of sites, sometimes with the intention to build a store but also to prevent competitors building within an existing store's "catchment area" Forum Index -> Glasgow Development & Demolition
