I doubt they will make significant structural changes until they see how Brexit plays out. No Deal would have a massive impact - we all know how fragile supply chains are - and they will, or at least should, be keeping all options open.

Business Rate/Minimum wage rises will drive any cost cutting plans due in 2019. A no deal Brexit will make any planned cuts even deeper

"structure changes" are nothing new. Can people provide facts instead of speculation.

Not that I’m aware of, however plans for next year will get signed off at the top level over the next month or so.

In case of our store it would be great. We could have 3 full time workers in place of one who does nothing between talking over phone with all his friends. Oh and maybe now we could fill toilet roll aisle at least once or twice a week.

There are guidelines.  Eg close in distance and combined sales under something like 90k

Hi M360. If you had to put a % on the chances of victims of so called "soft structure changes" being offered a redundancy package this year, what would you give it? Thank you.

Use fairly simple CAT A shops, it tends to be express store managers who have run the bigger and more complex express stores who then move into running a dual site. No idea on how many are around but I know of a few in my local area.

Very low.

The vast majority of changes are achieved informally so not sure there’s a massive need for redundancy.

Could be wrong, but wouldn’t say the people who’ve refused to change are a massive impact in terms of cost  overall.
