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.
