SO, ALDI will be in competition with Morrison’s in Herne Bay just yards apart. For Morrison’s to compete on price with Aldi it would need to carry approximately the same number of lines, which would mean a large reduction of what it carries at present. Will this happen, hardly likely. Anyone with only a cursory glance at the business pages will know that Morrison’s are in financial difficulties, and looking to close stores. Michael Khourly’s comment ‘it will probably give Morrison’s a kick up the backside and do something in response’ will probably come true. They will ‘up sticks’ and leave. Never mind, I’m sure the council will find a solution, another supermarket perhaps?
