Just read in the NEP that Boots are looking for 500 voluntary redunduncies in Beeston.

 A large section of Boots was sold to foreign companies & I always suspected this would follow.

Also I wonder if & how much the WPL had to do with this decision ?

 

Before anyone jumps up & down please note that this is NOT a political discussion.

I went through Boots this morning, they are building a new access road next to the roundabout on Lilac grove, at the other end of the site Thane road end they are having a bridge built over the canal, they are supposed to be building a lot of houses on spare land.

Possibly the whole site could be houses in the future.

With these new computer systems (local authority) your boss knows how long it is since your mouse moved!  It says something like..."has been away for 15 minutes".

 

You also know how long it is since your boss's mouse moved! Equal opportunities! ;)

Yep, A lot of houses going to be built on the Boots site, More land sold off to the developers... just the start of it really,,  Thane Road is going to run right round the back of the site - leading out on to the main road exit at Beeston end.. though Thane road is predictably not going to be able to take all the Vehicle traffic trying to cut through to Beeston from the flyover island that already gets congested when 3000 Boots employees try to leave work ,,  but no one cares about that bit ...  Also.. Sadly Boots is no longer Boots, tis just a name above the door of your local shop,, its now  "Wallgreens"  American through & through apparently... £100 million + has to be saved somehow,,,, so yes 700 job losses is just the start......
