early reportss from the metros turned to express format is it has not gone well.

What reports would  you be referring to? I'd be quite interested in the data to compare pre and post structure change.

Nothing official i'm sorry but just what friends who have been in the stores or transfered to them have said. Not a big sample size I realise.

Of course it hasn't gone well , that's why I took redundancy gladly after over 34 years working in one department - the thought of having to do at least 3 other jobs in a day mortified me

We don't live in a fairy tale world where you can recover a company that just posted a 6.4 billion pound loss and was in 22 billion pound in debt, without making cuts.
And today company on one hand recovered but debt rose from over 3 bilion in april to 14,2 bilion .... something new is coming

It will take a while to settle down, probably after christmas.  The only change to support could be an additional manager being added.  It'll never be reversed.   

That said, I'm hearing stores benefitting from having backstock on high level.

fair enough but start with the high earners first!


There was a huge cull in head office a few years ago. They all went about the same time as team leaders. More have gone since, it's not just stores. Some big earners have gone, I don't know figures but it was a huge cull. Think there is a thread on here somewhere.
