a) Tesco Expresses are much more profitable (profit/area) than supermarkets
b) On the rare occasions when a large enough plot comes up (eg 1 Stamford Street
), the council allows other things.
I'm quite doubtful whether Great Suffolk Street
would be a good location for a supermarket, though. It's not well served by buses and I'm not sure the surrounding roads could cope with the delivery lorries.
