Residents in Marston have vowed to boycott a new Tesco store set to open in a former pub.Well, fine. You don’t shop there, it’ll close, right? As long as you’re all united…
Hundreds of people in the area, led by a local vicar, pledged to support the protest at a public meeting chaired by Oxford East MP Andrew Smith.
Residents are concerned about the store’s impact on existing shops and increased traffic.
The boycott idea was suggested by Rev Elaine Bardwell, of St Michael and All Angels Church in Marston Road.By opening a shop to sell them things. The fiends.
She told the meeting: “One of the things we can do is just not shop there. Shopping is a moral issue and Tesco needs to understand the damage they are doing to the community.”
