It would increase my ‘in town’ spend in other shops

EVERY week I travel to Halifax to do my shopping at Sainsbury’s and spend money in other shops whilst there. If we had a local Sainsbury’s in Todmorden my money would be spent locally.

To the councillors that are against this development, they should watch last week’s edition of Town with Nicholas Crane on BBC 2, and see what Tesco has done for the town of Ludlow.
