Another shop bites the dust...

Recommended Posts

Will see a lot more stores closing,Big firms dont want to pay the so called Living wage, Companies looking at down grading  the rights workers have built up over the years including Double time for working Sundays B&Q being the latest to announce this, already a big spike in zero hour contracts, and stores wanting to open longer on a Sunday.

My gawd Sixties,the government bows to pressure from you lefties to introduce the living wage & you still find something to moan about.

Why not pay nothing then & just pay benefits. Then we will all be in it together.

Employ staff solely for weekend work that is a bit of a radical view sixties. I can see why companies are looking at reducing costs by altering overtime rates etc.

I Think the SNP actually welcomed of the living wage but criticised its legislation. They  introduced a higher living wage at 7.85 an hour in scotland. As for the Sunday opening its  strange that scottish stores can open l for more than 6 hours in scotland but not in england as scots mps voted it down. 

It is a shame that such an iconic store is closing but I suspect it is more down to the general death of the high street and the rise of the Internet than the minimum wage.

Did not say employ staff just for weekends , said staff losing double times for working Sundays, Lot of Firms looking at ways to claw back monies built up over the years,some rights gained by taking a lesser pat rise.

Wigan Council now asking workers to Volunteer to work 24 hours over and above there 40 hours , instead of overtime / recruiting New workers

People annoy me they swallow the lies put out by Tories that everyone is scroungers and taking monies fraudulently.

SSE announce they are closing their retail shops, with staff to be redeployed elsewhere within the company if possible.

Another closure for Perth.

 

Was just a matter of time. They did not have the buying power of the multi's or online.

They would have shut them down some time ago were it not for the fact that they were tied into leases for the premises occupied.

South St

exact shop tbc

The rent and rates in the High Street are excessive. Campus do not meet a High Street location as they have a specialist niche that means people will go to them. Cutting costs whilst maintaining a city centre location makes long term sense.

Saints should allow Campus to run the saints shop. Allow them to use it not only on match days, but rent free during the week.

Always aim to buy from Campus rather than Sports Direct etc. What's killing the small shops like Campus is the deals like SFA with JD sports.

With any luck, a new location might mean a bigger store and wider range of stock.
