BRIXHAM is expected to feature in a television programme about ‘supermarket wars’ tonight.
Channel 4’s current affairs programme Dispatches is focusing on supermarkets this evening.
Gone are the days when Tesco, Sainsbury’s, Morrisons and Asda dominated the food retail business.
They are being undercut by discount stores like Aldi and Lidl and their profits are slumping.
Presenter Harry Wallop asks what went wrong — and is still going wrong — for the major retailers, and reveals the tricks of the discounters’ success.
He also investigates how the supermarkets are fighting back with an aggressive price war, claiming to have slashed the prices of thousands of everyday items — and whether these deals are all they’re cracked up to be.
Brixham councillor Chris Lomas said: “They spent a day filming in Brixham after Tesco pulled out. I gave them the background on developing the central car park.”
Dispatches is on Channel 4 from 8pm to 8.30pm.
