Campaigning to curb supermarket power

Llandeilo, Carmarthenshire

Sainsbury’s wants to build a store of 25,000 square feet in Llandeilo. Local residents and shops fear the planned new store will kill off the smaller competition and have formed a campaign group "Save Llandeilo's Future".  Campaigners are demanding that the county council protects Llandeilo as an important gateway to the Tywi Valley.

In March the MP and AM have said that the planned Sainsbury's store will drain the local economy and kill local trade and have urged the Council to reject the plans.
