It would appear that you cannot simply say a a collective group 'I want a shop but I don't want it to be a tesco'. Any store would have the same fascia/noise/litter problems. I think that vacant ground floor units are more detrimental to anywhere's 'atmosphere' than any shop, and I would think carefully before boycotting the change of use. The united voice of a community can, and should effect what buildings are used for, but selecting specific brands based on lifestyle choices is a gross overestimation of what is achievable or ethical.
