Mother­care shake-up

Manchester Evening News - - NATIONAL -

MOTHER­CARE is to swing the axe on 50 un­der­per­form­ing stores and re-hire the chief ex­ec­u­tive it sacked just weeks ago.

The clo­sures, which will re­sult in hun­dreds of job losses, will be car­ried out through a com­pany vol­un­tary ar­range­ment – a move which al­lows com­pa­nies to close loss-mak­ing shops.

In a move that will stun many ob­servers, Mark Newton Jones, who was given the el­bow as chief ex­ec­u­tive last month, will re­turn to the fold.
