Far from unhappy about Lidl leaving Kentish Town Road, London NW5 after vacating their Camden Town site a few years ago, one Camden New Journal reader argues that “hopefully, the independents will get more business." 

They go on to cite: “Cruelly produced and poor quality meat and dairy, heavily packaged food over-wrapped in nonrecyclable materials, automated tills overseen by a single member of staff ” as examples of the ‘benefits’ that Lidl bring wherever they are allowed to trade.
