SaveHove reports that Waitrose is to acquire the Neville Road, Hove, Co-op Superstore.
The Co-op will continue to trade at the site until 13th March 2014. All 80 Co-op employees will be offered the opportunity to become Partners in the John Lewis Partnership. The branch will then close for about 4 weeks to enable conversion and for employees to receive their inductions as Waitrose Partners. Additional job creation is planned. As I hope everyone knows, all employees are also Partners when they work for Waitrose/The John Lewis Partnership, with a say in how it is run and with a share in profits. Full report here.
