Good news for some anyway. As local newspapers around the south east report which of their local Unwins stores are to be brought by Threshers I note with sadness that the shop I first began my wine career – as a part-time shelf filler – is closing. Initially operated by Fullers, before they sold out to Unwins, the tiny shop in Flackwell Heath is not being saved.

Bucks Free Press
“The buy-out, concluded on Thursday, last week, could see workers at stores in Chesham, Gerrards Cross, Holmer Green, Penn and Hazlemere keep their jobs. It is estimated that all jobs from those stores will be saved. A shop typically has five or six members of staff. However, staff at the High Wycombe Unwins branch in New Road, Cressex, and the Flackwell Heath branch in Swains Market, have been left looking for new jobs after Threshers said they would not be reopening those stores. “
