A Tesco Express has opened next door to the Cutlers’ Hall on Church Street - and it has certainly got you talking.
Here is what you have been saying on The Star’s Facebook page.
For some the positioning across from the Cathedral and next to the Cutlers’ Hall has led to some concern but for others a once empty city centre space being filled by a leading retailer is the cause for celebration.
Matthew Orme: “A tesco express looks good.”
Andy Rich: “A tesco store thats so posh it might acutally reflect their current rip off prices”
Rachel Elizabeth Brookes: “Grand buildings turned in to a tesco express.... Why??? Smh”
Mick Horus Greaves: “Stupid!”
