Large Shop In The Local Retail Park (powerhouse) Laid Off All Staff Today!

Recommended Posts

This is breaking news!

My cleaner just rang me to tell me that her husband has just been made redundant without notice. He works for the home electricals supergiant "Powerhouse" in Edge Lane retail park, Liverpool.

He turned up to work today to find the shutters on the store were down. The rest of the staff were outside and were told by security that they were not allowed to enter the store. They were then taken to the office at the back of the store and informed they were all being made redundant as the store has closed down for good. Here's your letter, bye!

No notice, no rumours, nothing.

When a store and company of this size decides to shut down just like that, something is very wrong with the economy.

She siad her husband has spent most of his day in the jobcentre signing on for JSA.

I'll be seeing her tomorrow morning and will be able to tell you more then. I'm not sure if other store staff were met with the same story this morning although I'm sure we'll find out.

Obviously Christmas sales did not pick up as much as the BBC would have us believe. Hello recession, here we come!

:blink:

Naah, TTRTR is confidently telling us on another thread that the economy will grow in the short, medium AND long term, and if not, our glorious leaders will intervene to make sure that it does.

I would suggest that your cleaner's husband is merely a doom mongering (sic) permabear who only has himself to blame for being made redundant.

He should put his redundancy money into property and in no time at all, he'll be a millionaire.

Isn't that right TTRTR?
