MOVES to build a new supermarket on the outskirts of Ulverston look set to be blocked.
Have your say
Excellent comment Johnno. Agree with every word. Although, I am probably what you would call an "off comer", we're not all the same you know. ;)The town needs a boost like this to give the place a kick up the wotsit. If whichever store 'wins' and the independents work together instead of fighting each other it will benefit everyone.
All of these arm-chair experts commenting here, from both sides, why aren't you on the council fighting for your cause? It's been discussed for over a year now, closer to two in fact, you could've been elected and showed them who's boss. Except it'd mean getting out of that arm-chair wouldn't it? Pathetic.
If the KUS brigade don't want to shop in any supermarkets then they don't have to. However, they should not be allowed to dictate what other people should do and how they should spend their hard earned cash. The KUS brigade want us to return to wearing shawls and clogs to walk on the hallowed cobbled streets, this is supposed to be a democratic country where everyone has a right to speak their mind. The vast majority of people I have spoken to regarding Sainsbury's are in favour of it coming to Ulverston as they cannot afford to shop in the "quaint" little shops any more. There is no way that anyone can buy all they need from the shops in Ulverston at the prices they charge. Some people are experiencing very difficult times and are even resorting to "Food Banks" to survive, shopping in the specialist shops in Ulverston is not the answer for the vast majority of people!
