Owners of independent shops and cafes in Monmouth say they're worried they'll lose business if plans to build a McDonalds on the outskirts of town go ahead.
The suggested development would also include a pub, a coffee chain and a new vets.
Despite opposition to the plans, others argue the development will be good news for the local economy.
McDonalds say their outlet alone would create up to 65 jobs.
The planning application is still being considered.
Monmouthshire council says whatever the outcome, all measures will be taken to ensure the town's economy is not undermined.
Sharon Brace, a local cafe owner said:
"I chose to set up in Monmouth is because there's so many small independent retailers.
"There's a real support for that in the town and what worries me is if a McDonald's is built on the outskirts, you're going to get a lot of people passing Monmouth completely and missing out on all the wonderful trade we've got here."

Flaws came to light after a woman from Monmouth was wrongly told she had miscarried nine weeks into her pregnancy. Now they've set up a helpline to support other women who might be affected.
Alexandra Lodge reports.
Cardiff and Vale University Health Board’s Executive Director of Nursing, Ruth Walker, offered the Board’s unreserved apologies to Emily Wheatley for misdiagnosing her pregnancy. The Board has accepted the Ombudsman’s recommendations and assures the public it has now updated it's protocols.
"We do not underestimate the distress we have caused and are genuinely sorry that it has taken an Ombudsman’s report for her to receive the answers she deserved. What happened is absolutely unacceptable"
“While we now have protocols in place within the Obstetrics and Gynaecology directorate that comply with best practice, we have decided to go beyond the Ombudsman’s recommendations and undertake a review of the way we care for women in the early stages of pregnancy. "
The Health Board understands there may be current or former patients who have concerns about their experience of early pregnancy scans whilst in their care. They've opened a helpline to support anyone who wants to talk through issues relating to their care. The UHB helpline number is 0800 952 0244
