Re: The Co-op Thread

apparently the most important thing for co-op staff is that they are paid every four weeks, not monthly, meaning they have 13 pay days a year on odd dates. So what is the very first thing on the homepage? Don't Tesco also do that? Fairly sure Sainsburgers do too. GWR do. Four Seasons pay 4 weekly too

As long as in date there is no obligation to reduce them.

As does Derby (Spondon)

Re: High Street chain collapse sweepstake

Grainger Games - a gaming store chain based in Newcastle with 67 stores has closed all its stores. It's a shame as they always had great service and they were reasonably priced - the one in my local town centre was always quite quiet, but the Grainger Games in Sale where I used to live always had a...

Re: The Very Official McDonalds (and other fast food outlets) Thread

Nobody is taking your choices away from you and it's not a matter of trust; Pepsi is still available at Pizza Hut, albeit at a higher price. The levy wasn't intended to remove sugary drinks from the market, it was designed to make consumers stop and think about the choice. If you decide as a result...

Re: High Street chain collapse sweepstake

I can see Debenhams being acquired by Sports Direct. What, really? A possibility as SD has increased its share holding in Debenhams to 29.7% ( at 30% they would have to put an offer in to buy the remaining shares ), however SD holds similar stakes in other companies and never crossed the 30% thresh...

Re: Another High Street Rebrand

It is arguably the biggest brand in the centre now, along with Boots, now that BHS has gone. The main anchor space was a Co-op department store until the mid-90s, then Allders, then TK Maxx (who only used 1 or 2 of the 3 floors) and for the last few years. It was cleared out in 2011 ahead of the fi...

Re: Another High Street Rebrand

Hammerson only really want the out of town supercentres. I expect they'll be stripped of Intu branding and the reduced Intu portfolio sold off either as a whole or centre-by-centre. Doesn't bode well for the poor old Broadmarsh centre in Nottingham though, now on its 6th or 7th redevelopment propos...
