Sainsbury's closes meat and deli counters
Sainsbury’s plans to close many of its fresh fish and meat counters, and will eliminate 3,000 jobs. Sainsbury’s said in a press release it is closing its meat, fish, and deli counters, based on reduced customer demand. “This will make stores simpler to run and reduce food waste. We will keep adding more quality and innovation in our aisles,” the retailer said. On the other hand, Sainsbury's intends to increase online sales in the grocery sector to meet further demand. Multiple lockdowns due to COVID-19 crisis and losses in revenue for the British population have impacted big players in the retail such as Sainsbury's or Marks&Spencer. The last one reported its first negative financial result in 94 years of GBP 87.6 million ( €97 million).
John Lewis, the owner of Waitrose supermarkets, has also decided to cut 1,500 jobs at its corporate office, according to BBC.
