Supermarkets are inconvenient in everyway, though they were originally promoted as 'convenience'. There could be formed an enormous list of the inconveniences that I haven't time for right now, no doubt cooperatives could assist in this also and prob there's one nearby with handouts on it?

Economic arguments are needed as they are solely economy driven.

At this time of financial crisis this may be easier except for those needing to be in denial and to just be 'safe' operating in familiarity with the following 'safe' feelings when they succeed, as a tescoes, is usually, a guaranteed win.

Woolworths have just folded I believe with hundreds of thousands ? of jobs lost round the UK. Supermarkets were promoted for also for their monopoly on profit, but this argument is risky now. Remind people woolworths is a supermarket as is tescoes is a supermarket - using reasonable doubt that tescoes will live on through a financial blackhole.

Mention also 'Emsworth', the village without a supermarket near Havant ? in North Portsmouth?. It promotes itself as a tourist attraction, it has lovely healthy little shops and it is destined to live a better life than the villages/towns with a superinconvenientmarket!

sorry for the rush reply. My town here had a big supermarket fight before I was here, and still the local IGA- that gives a % back to the community does better trading.
