Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I'm not sure I fully understand the issues, so a few questions:

Post Brexit, would the goods imported from Britain to NI be subject to customs controls? Is that what the Big 3 are complaining about?

Similarly, German, French or Swedish retailers can import goods freely into the Republic, thanks to the single market, but will they also be able to sell those goods in NI without customs controls after Brexit?

If that is the case, then British retailers would be at a disadvantage in NI, but is this what the "no border checks" in Ireland is all about in the end?
