Plea to think again about effect of new Sainsbury’s

EDITOR – Re the recent report in the Leader; I read that Sainsbury’s are hoping to set up business in Newmarket now, instead of the back of Co-op in Northgate.

Does this mean they can’t compete with opposition? So now their intention is to start trading next door to Londis, a few yards to the west another shop, Costcutters, and yet another few yards to the east Kenwick Stores – all of these shops serving the Newmarket area extremely well and all family concerns.

So to councillors and planning department folk, may I ask that you think again before these folk lose their businesses and redress the balance.
