What's wrong with supermarkets?
At least 577 new supermarkets were approved in the past two years in the UK, according to BBC research. Do you welcome the growth in supermarkets?
Campaigners have voiced concerns about the growth of the "big four" - Tesco, Sainsbury's, Asda and Morrisons - saying the stores are putting independent traders out of business and destroying high streets.
Unions have welcomed the growth saying new stores have given people employment when they had all but given up hope of ever working again.
Has there been a rise in the number of supermarkets in your area? Have you noticed stores being built in unusual places? Do you work for one of the big four? Are you an independent retailer?
