The chairman of an opposition group set up to stop Tesco Express opening in the Golden Harp pub building says seeing the shop up and running is 'heartbreaking'.
The store in Furze Platt Road finally opened on Wednesday, June 4, following more than 18 months of campaigning from Mark Newcombe and the Furze Platt Action Group (FPAG).
Mark says the group is still working to encourage residents to boycott the store and is planning a large protest on the site in the coming weeks.
"We want it to be unprofitable," he said.
"The feelings are still just as strong as they ever were, they haven't gone away at all."
An opening ceremony was held at the shop on Thursday, June 5, where £500 was donated to East Berkshire Down's Syndrome Support Group.
