Save Ainsdale Village Shops & Stop Tesco sign now

Tesco are trying to buy up the leases of 6 small business at Sherword House, Ainsdale, Southport, Lancahire. Legat Owen are the Landlords who want to sell the leases. There is one empty Wine Shop which was due to reopen at the end of December but the landlords decided the had other ideas, thats when Tesco got involved. If they Get Their hands on the leases they will Throw Out All the Small businesses, not the Chemist, at this time are safe. The other shops wil be thrown out as Tesco want thier shop. These shops are family run and have been trading in the village for over 30 years and want to continue doing so.

The Village already has enough food stores and another is not wanted or needed. This will have a knock onl effect on the other businesses.
There are already 6 Tesco stores in the area. Livelihoods and jobs will be lost.
Save our Village shops for our Children's Children future.

There are Big concerns that the closure of small shops is a one-way street. Once small independent stores shut, there are often insurmountable barriers to getting back into the High Street. It is very difficult for new businesses to start up. And there are concerns that a tipping point could be reached. Once a certain amount of independent retailers shut, the wholesale industry may no longer be sustainable, and could collapse. The knock on effect of this will be further damage to the independent retail sector.

The amount of small independent businesses that have closed down over the years due to Supermarkets just taking over must be in the thousands by now. They just streamline their product range and prices go up.

So please sign the petition to stop it.
