Daily Telegraph: "Sir Terry Leahy 'It is the customer who decides where to shop'"

"Sir Terry Leahy, the former head of Tesco has been accused of killing off the High Street at Hay Festival. "

"... But Sir Terry claimed that in fact supermarkets are good for the High Street, as it ensures people remain in town to shop rather than going elsewhere.

He said:
“The towns that Tesco invests in do better. If you do not let modern facilities into the town, people go elsewhere. 
“So the question is, is there a net benefit [if the supermarket wins]. I think there is – there is investment, better quality of service, and cheaper food.”
"Following the recent planning reforms, Sir Terry backed plans for the controversial 'presumptions in favour of sustainable development'."
