Cheltenham 104

Well whaddayaknow?

After writing about Burton Menswear in Cheltenham and what I was up to there 10 years ago, quite coincidentally my gaffer from those days sent me a line on Facebook! Sean was my store manager at Cheltenham 104 and he was a sound bloke. Haven't seen him in 5 years! Sean now works for Gloucester Rugby, two words I never thought I'd write on a Bristol Blog. Anyhow, must see the lad for a beer soon.

The pic is Burton's Brent Cross - we used to call them occasionally from the sticks in Chelts and they were thoroughly up their own arses. Hey we were all good and it was a sound job, but we were selling trousers, y'know?

Off to work today and a quick Retail Ops presentation to a gang of managers from our stores, with lunch thrown in for the third time this week!

Mind that waistline now!!
In my retail days(!) anyone from Brentcross was, as you said, up their own! But I wasn't selling trousers!
