BOROUGH GREEN NEWS
DIRTY TRICKS FROM SAINSBURY !!
Sainsbury are sending recorded messages to local phone numbers saying they are cheaper than Nisa !!.This a desperate move, ( and quite untrue),but it confirms the rumours that the local Sainsbury is struggling. They pledged not to start a price war when they barged in, but as they haven't had the success they demanded, their fat-cat directors are starting to throw money at the problem - don't get suckered in, if Sainsbury win, we lose ALL our shops

SAINSBURY SURVIVAL? Now that is interesting - I understand Sainsbury have been happily violating planning conditions regarding vehicle access and the shape of the building, and Planning Enforcement action has already been started. Add to that the constant grunbles about lack of stock and high prices, will they be staying long? The word on the street says possibly not, good job they only have a short lease [SAINSBURY PAGE]

I have received an email from the Planning dept, where they say " we have also been approached by Crest for some pre-application advice in respect of the future development potential of the former office building and car park site ". Now whilst I am grateful to Louise for this information, am I alone in think it is the height of cheek that these two groups of outsiders are discussing what to do with OUR village, and we aren't even invited to the table. I think this is the substance behind the 12-15 house runour we keep hearing. Answers on a Molotov Cocktail to TMBC Offices.

25 new jobs, but will they make up for the jobs lost when our High St collapses? I wonder if Sue will be asked to open the new store, its down to her tireless efforts it got passed,. I suppose she thought her new houses at IQW and A-Z might need it . [SAINSBURY PAGE]
