A big thank you to all our amazing Living Store colleagues!

As we adjust to another lockdown and tighter restrictions across all parts of the UK, including our Living stores closing once again, the resilience of our amazing Living colleagues has been truly inspirational. Many of them are now back supporting their local superstores for the third time since the pandemic began, learning new skills and working in different departments whilst all the time continuing to help serve our customers and communities.

Debbie Stevenson from our Broughton Living store in Chester is just one example of how our Living store colleagues have quickly adapted to the changing needs of the business. Debbie is normally a George colleague in Broughton but during the closure of her own store has been supporting in the local Chester superstore helping out wherever our customers need her.

People Business Partner Mel Thomas says: “Debbie’s energy and commitment is definitely to be commended and she has been a welcome addition to the Chester store, as have all other Broughton Living colleagues during this latest lockdown.

"Each and every one of them has adapted willingly and well to the change in working location for the third time. Although it is an unsettling time they have all shown great resilience and their commitment to our business has not faltered and I’m so proud of them all!”

A huge thank you to all our Living colleagues across the country – you really are making a huge difference for our customers during very challenging times and we’re so proud of you all!
