Nothing wrong with healthy competition, more importantly an ASDA store in Greenock will alleviate our many locals heading to the ASDA store that is currently some miles from Greenock. Instead of all the negatitivity why not list the pros and cons. As for Tesco's in Darymple street, how many people stopped using this particular store when the Port Glasgow store opened. Lastly the piece of land that ASDA want to build upon is a complete eye sore at the moment. I presume the tunnel visioned members of the council do not have any alternative suggestions into it's use.

The location for this store is completely wrong . The tailback of traffic in that area at the moment can be horrendous never mind an Asda store there . This is a built up area , with a primary school and tenement housing to cope with, it does not need an Asda into the bargain .
