After many months of rumours and deliberation, finally work has began on the new Tesco-Lotus supermarket here in Thongsala. This may not sound significant to you but when you take into account that we are on an island where the nearest store is either on Koh Samui or the mainland of Surat Thani then it is big news. There were a number of sites up for consideration across the island, all of which has signs posted saying "Phangan Not Want Tesco", put there no doubt by the family that already owns a number of supermarkets across the island.
