The problems at Unwins - a 400 strong chain in the South East of England - continue. Not only are the stores totally empty of stock (I would show you pictures but who wants to see empty shelves?) and mass redundancies looming but suppliers who still haven't been paid (such as Dromana) are halting further stocks reaching the stores. The Times yesterday reported that the owners, DM Equity, have been forced to seek an emergency cash injection to keep the company afloat over Christmas. How on earth can this company keep going with no stock? And why is it taking so long to sort itself out? No stock = no sales = no money = closure...

Why am I so het-up on one failing company? It is a major player in the South East with 400 odd stores but on a more personal level I use to work for them several years ago and I still have a soft-spot for the company... aah, bless.
