Asda sign land deal to build store.
The Wal-Mart-owned supermarket signed a deal to lease land at Gorseinon provisional on planning permission being granted. The store, if approved, would employ up to 200 people on the site, alongside the town's existing Somerfield store.
A planning application by Asda could be submitted in a few months' time.
There is some support for the proposals with people claiming it will lead to a cut in prices and bigger consumer choice.
But the town's chamber of trade is leading a campaign against it and claimed it could sound the death knell for some existing traders.
