Does Gloucester Road Need Another Supermarket?

Submitted by Tom on 01/08/2010

Work has begun on the new Sainsbury's store at the bottom of Gloucester Road at the Zetland Road junction. The site was formerly a Bottoms Up with a Snooker club above and the new chain store will threaten many of the local independent stores in the area. Despite Gloucester Road being famous for it's independent stores it already boasts more than it's fair share of supermarkets, including a Sainsburys.

So do  the residents really need another one? Some locals are clearly against the plans, while others in the area would prefer to see a Sainsburys than another empty shop... Atleast it's not a 'Cash for Gold' shop I guess!
