A Sainsbury’s in Hampstead?

38 Degrees member Jessica has started a petition on Campaigns By You against Sainsbury’s opening a store on South End Green in Hampstead – as four local independent shops will be lost to an “identikit chain store”.

Jessica is handing in the petition to Sainsbury’s tomorrow morning at their AGM and the more of us that sign, the greater impact it will have. Click here to sign her petition if you agree.

Jessica says:

“The loss of these independent local shops will mean that social contact will be reduced. It is widely recognised that small independent shops make up the heart of a thriving community. The importance of this cannot be underestimated for people who are less mobile, such as the elderly.”
