Does anyone know the outcome of the sainsbury meeting last night in greasby?. I just read the Wirral globe and omg do people jump on the band wagon.... i mean. would u rather have cheaper food and the means to shop at a normal price or have to travel to westkirby or upton for real prices,not rip off prices on food or have a carpark which is for the cat only" not shoppers for the co'op which belongs to the Pub.....stop ya moaning.... the answer is simple. Really get a grip on life?? betting things to worry about....

Is that a sneaky ploy by Sainburys to reduce the population of Greasby and so have less people moaning about their shop?

On the other hand, reducing the number of future potential customers doesn't sound like a good long term business plan.

Is Edz a Sainsbury's lackey sent onto local internet sites to whip up support for this new store?

I don't see what the desperate need is for yet another supermarket on the Wirral. We must already have reached saturation point. They're destroying local shops and shopping centres. Enough already! Good luck to the people of Greasby in their fight against this development.

If people really need to go to a supermarket then there's a giant Sainsbury's down the road in Upton. There's also a bit further away in Prenton, a Tesco's in Heswall and a Morrison's in West Kirby. All easily accessible from Greasby town centre by car or bus.

437, 83 and 83A buses all pass through Greasby very frequently and will take your Mum to all the above supermarkets [except Heswall Tesco]. As she's 66 she can travel free to these using her National Bus Pass. There's also and Aldi [or Lidl?] opening soon next to West Kirby station.

Meeting was very well attended despite foul weather; hall was packed. That reinforced the community's opposition to the proposals really; particular mention was made of the impact the height and proximity of the building would have on the recently opened reading garden at the childrens centre - which, rather suspiciously, is not shown on the latest plans. A powerpoint presentation also showed the visual impact the development would have, issues with delivery wagons turning off road and into car park etc. Deadline for objections is now 19th January.

I am not against any development at all on principle on that site; if Greene King is so desperate to lease the land for retail, why not build a few smaller units in a more traditional way, to respect the reading garden and add to what the village already provides? I suggest Greasby would benefit from a fishmonger, small hardware, fabric/haberdashery/craft shop etc which would add character and choice, rather than letting one of the big supermarkets in, to the detriment of existing shops.
