Second supermarket badly needed
MY husband and I would very much like the Lidl store to come to Ely. It is a fantastic supermarket with good quality produce at reasonable cost. The town needs another large supermarket to rival Tesco, especially in the light of all the new housing being

It is a fantastic supermarket with good quality produce at reasonable cost. The town needs another large supermarket to rival Tesco, especially in the light of all the new housing being built. We definitely feel the rejection is a large injustice.
To say the proposed site is not appropriate is just ridiculous. If it is appropriate for Tesco, then it must also be appropriate for Lidl. We feel it's Tesco not wanting the competition just opposite their store. I am sure there would be sufficient car parking spaces for customers, and to say extra traffic would be a nightmare is absurd. Surely a lot of people would use their cars to shop at Lidl instead of Tesco, so there really wouldn't be an increase in traffic, it would be the same but divided between the two stores.
All the best to Lidl. We can't wait for their arrival - we know it will be a tremendous success.
