Here! Here!

some people are never happy! tesco will for one provide more jobs, cheaper food and clothing and give the commerce of bedlington a much needed boost. this will cause other shops to consider moving in thus providing more jobs etc etc. but to some this is a bad thing! :blink:  

lets boycott tescos! boo to improving bedlington! boo to cheaper food! :blink:   :lol::lol::lol:

People go on about Tesco having control over things... what the hell do you think Somerfield is up to?

Is everyone aware that Somerfield own the building next door? Dont you think it's weird that it's been standing empty for over 2 and a half years when previously (before the merging) two competing stores sat side by side for years?

Can anyone remember Somerfield coming under investigation (including the Bedlington store) by the CC (Competition Commission), whereby the CC stated amongst other things that Somerfield were leaving us with no choice but to pay high prices in their stores because there wasnt any other competitors in the area? (As in, Somerfield clinging onto it's other empty store in Bedlington, just to make sure)

Somerfield of course replied by saying that Netto and ASDA in Blyth were competition enough and was let off in the case of the Bedlington inquiry.

So Somerfield also has it's controlling ways on Bedlington. Now you know why the place has been standing empty for so long.

I say down with Somerfield the stingy money grabbing !*!@# !

Exactly! Also,what do you think is gonna happen when people get wind of Tesco in Bedlington? Other shops like River Island and Dorothy Perkins etc are going to want to set up shop in Bedlington! Finally,after years of been a town with nothing happening,a boring non-existence place,it`s gonna get a place on the map..and that`s just what Bedlington needs!

It`s about time something happened,Bedlington has been a ghost town for too long..it`s worth more than that 6.gif

Has anyone seen the notice in the window? Which store, Somerfields?

There are signs all over in Somerfield saying it closes on the 22nd of September. They will be moving to Cramlington.

If you ask the store manager he will tell you about it.

I see they are now advertising that they 'match Tesco's prices' haha, that was funny. <_<

      A caring and much-loved great-great-grandmother has enjoyed birthday greetings from over 3,000 people as she turns 100.
      Former care assistant Rosie Cochrane entered her second century on January 21 this year.
      Although lockdown means the celebration, from her assisted living home in Bedlington, wasn't quite what she might have planned before the pandemic, granddaughter Christine Logan was determined to ensure 'Granny Rosie' was showered with love on her special day.
      Northumberland County Council fostering team manager Christine said: “Growing up I would watch her and my mam care for others, and just knew I wanted to do the same.
      "She has always put others first and cared for others where she can, be it family, friends or through her work. She is a real inspiration and it is because of her I chose my career path and have also fostered to help others in any way I can.
      "It has been a really difficult time not being able to see her. She loves to get her nails and hair done, go shopping and travel. But we know we must do all we can to keep her safe and ourselves right now.
