Please help us spread this info as far and wide as possible….
Kemptown in Brighton is a lovely diverse area which has already been invaded by Tescos and Starbucks. Now Sainsbury’s want to muscle in as well, on the site of the old Taj shop… Why should the community let that happen? If we act fast we have a good chance of defeating Sainsbury’s, just as they have recently been rejected in Preston Park.
The Taj shop was a well-loved institution but unfortunately the group which owns it have gone into administration. The site is 13-15 Old Steine and Sainsburys have put in two applications which have been received but not registered. This is good, it means we still have time to organise a campaign.
Keep it local!
