Business leaders in East Anglia have voiced their opposition to plans announced by supermarket chain Tesco to create a large new store in the area.The company wants to build a shop in Aldeburgh, which some claim will affect the unique character of one of the country’s most popular seaside reports.Naomi Tarry, chairman of the Aldeburgh Business Association, stated there are a number of small businesses in the town that offer visitors something different and they could be threatened by Tesco’s presence in the town, reports the East Anglian Daily Times.”We have a wonderful business community and the danger is, with big chains moving in, that we could lose our identity,” she said, adding there is a fear other big name brands could follow if Tesco wins approval to build a store in Aldeburgh.Tesco is one of the UK’s biggest employers, with 500,000 employees in 14 countries around the world.Posted by Hywel Griffiths
