Deathwatch: healthy punters not digging Julian Graves
You know – the health food specialist, the sister company of the more widely-known Holland & Barrett. Come on, keep up!
We’ve never been in one of their stores, but then again, we’re not exactly health food fanatics. But there’s 363 members of staff* sweating on their futures tonight after the company went into administration.
Deloitte are the administrators faced with the unenviable task of making a silk purse out of the sow’s ear that Julian Graves has evidently become, with a spokesbod for Deloitte sayin that the company has been: “adversely affected by the tough economic climate, in particular, the ongoing pressure on consumer spending, a competitive high street trading environment, and rising commodity prices”.
How has this new affected YOUR day? Be as honest as you possibly can. Thank you.
(*or at least there are 363 full-time equivalent jobs at stake)
