    Store closures - the new normal

    Store closures - the new normal

    Our eighth episode covers store closures and those being the 'new normal' in food retail. There was a time where retailers never closed stores, lest give it to a rival. Yet we are in very different times with Waitrose recently selling stores to Lidl and Morrisons also announcing the closure of 4 recently also. 
    Also important to remember the colleagues at times like this.

    Accepting the unacceptable

    Accepting the unacceptable

    We are back!
    Our seventh episode covers 'accepting the unacceptable' and whether there is too much of that going on in stores, it's easy to hark back to days of yore but standards are on the wane. Is it just a representation of the market, post discount, lower margins and price being king?
    Do you accept the unacceptable?

    Better to have loved and lost..

    After a brief rest... Our sixth episode covers Sainsbury's, Asda, the abandonment of their merger and what it may mean for both businesses, moving forward. This podcast was recorded on Friday, so there isn't a mention of their 'cashless' store for example.
    We also consider what the full year results may hold for Sainsbury's too.

    Wholesale change?

    Our fifth episode covers Jack's in Rawtenstall, a small town in Lancashire and why their 9th store is a different to the rest and indeed, anything else in the UK market. 
    We have intro / exit music. Like a refit in a previously old, tired store. It all feels a bit more professional...
