Back to School...


Today I am a man returning to gainful employment, and I am mightily pleased and thankful for that, given this current climate. My first week entails readying a new store to trade in a week's time. The store is going to be one of the eight that I will have responsibility for so it will be an education to build it from scratch (well,not the bricks and mortar, obviously).

It is a leisurely start with a lunchtime train to Derbyshire and then we will go at it from tomorrow, I suppose.

I am looking forward to hard work and engagement as they have been in short supply these late months.

More blogging later in the week!

GOOD LUCK!!!! thinking of you all day!!

youre a twitterer too eh??


l used to relish opening new stores....wonder if its as fun as it was, will you have much autonomy or is it stealthily guarded with no room for your personal touches...???I wonder..

I shall expect a full report, on issues of H&S, personnel, merchandising, display, warehouse, stock, and of course a snagging list..

have fun..
