Crisis at Unwins!  Add/Read Comments

Just received (unconfirmed but reliable) information that things at Unwins just keep on getting worse. Shop Managers 'at an unspecified time in the future' are no longer to exist! Apparently a 'manager' will be placed in charge of 7 shops; those existing managers that are not sacked outright will become 'customer care supervisors'. What that means to those provided with accommodation above the stores is anyone's guess. I will spare you the graphic details of how the news was broken to managers (badly to say the least) and what the reaction was to this news to your imagination.

I ask you, what a way to treat your loyal staff who have held on in there though some really bad times. The stock situation is terrible - I have a picture to post of a cigarette gantry at a local shop. Empty.

Unwins is a 300 odd shop wine retailer chain based in the South East of the UK. They have been having difficulties for several years.

UPDTAE: some confirmation using slightly different wording.
