Totally agree with what specialgravy said, every year most things go up, rent, bills etc, I do not have enough money to live on, and before you say it, I do not smoke, do not drink and do not go out at all, I am a full Time worker and that is not enough to pay the bills, if things carry on like this then I can see myself in a few years homeless, if that happens, will Tesco still let me work?

What do people think to the '100 years Tesco tv advert?'   I assume customers on rollerskates and motorbikes is to demonstrate the ease of getting in and out quickly, and to be able to buy branded products at a good price.

I said not sure, as near me lots of shops closed, but lots of different shops have opened.  The places that closed is ALL due to disagreement with council tax rates and rent. the places that opened is because they got a "new business tenant deal".

A local butcher closed down, because the shopping centre was going to demolish the markets (8 months after refurbishing it and filling it up) the centre demanded £65k per year in rent and taxes! he said "get lost" and he is no longer a butcher as to set up a new shop needs £20k for the walk in fridge and walk in freezer.. so he retired from being a butcher, .. a family business older then I am.. destroyed by selfish rent prices.

Same shopping area is now demolishing 1/2 of the centre as over 30 shops closed down due to the SAME reason in the SAME month.. and now the idiot owners are scratching their as to why heads why everyone EVEN TESCO were forced to close down!
