I have been interested in an Asda store being built in Exmouth. I am sure all our local families will welcome the low cost of George clothes. This is long overdue. Tesco should not be the only superstore in Exmouth.Has anyone considered the amount of traffic that would turn up in Exmouth and can we accommodate this? There is no Asda in the Exeter area so you can be sure Asda will draw those customers to Exmouth. Would Asda consider helping to fund a new bypass - maybe across Woodbury or a bridge across to Dawlish? Of course the alternative is to keep a new Asda on the outskirts, maybe at Liverton.
