    The main one in my local shopping centre is on that list which surprises me as it always looks very busy. I don't shop there though, to expensive!

    Seriously? Karma - what nonsense.

    As they have 2 large stores (one 24 hour) within probably a mile of the homestore I am not that surprised.

    Same applies to where I live.

    I will miss Homeplus though. I've bought quite a bit from there, the last time only last week when I bought a new mobile phone. Also use it for click and collect.

    Also, I always park there when I go to town, it's only a five minute walk from there.

    I think we live in the same town.

    So are Aldi & Lidl also greedy for opening more shops?

    I dont get why people are so happy that a British retailer like Tesco is doing badly while foreign retailers are coming in and taking market share.
    Faith, hope, charity, these three; but the greatest of these is charity.

    They haven't opened "everywhere" and to suggest some religious belief is responsible for store closures is daft.

    They have, they were well known for ruining the high streets and little shops. Where have you been?

    its my opinion its karma for them, you dont have to agree.

    Houghton Regis is my local little Tesco, there's a huge Morrisons over the road from it so I don't see that many people being bothered tbh.

    You have an interesting definition of "everywhere"

    I don't agree with any religious belief system, just in case you think I was having a go at yours specifically.

    We've got three here, and a fourth under construction, serving a town of 43,000. I'm amazed that none of them are closing.
