Tesco will not open supermarket in Llanrwst

Conwy County Council leader Dilwyn Roberts today announced there will be no Tesco supermarket in Llanrwst.

The council leader informed Cabinet members this afternoon that the developer working on behalf of Tesco had informed Conwy County Council that "a client does not intend to proceed with developing a store at Llanrwst".

Deiniol Ap Dafydd of Blas Ar Fwyd delicatessen, restaurant and wine merchant in Llanrwst, who employs 36 local people, said he is pleased with the announcement.

"The most important thing for me is that there is no risk to the community of Llanrwst. I am pleased that the Cabinet has not been put under unfair pressure to be forced to say yes or no for the sale of Plas yr Dre.

"The threat of Tesco had discouraged us from investing in the business further for the last three years so I am extremely pleased, for the time being, that Llanrwst is saved as a market town," he said.

We are still waiting a comment from Tesco.
