Didn't one of their senior managers become of the mayor of one of the combined authorities somewhere in the midlands.

Another of Boris's crew. I wonder if he supports his ex employers views.

Company blames losses on brexit shocker.

Maybe they should take a closer look at their own performance. Co-op funeral care posted big losses today also. They didn't blame brexit. According to some on here their business will be booming if no deal goes through

The people are being squeezed after 4 decades of right wing policies.

Go on bury your head in the sand Cooper. The leavers seem to trot out the line that these companies who are struggling are using Brexit as an excuse and shifting the blame. The only problem with that of course is the fact that more businesses are closing now than at any time since the global crash. That's not just a coincidence.

Ask the government and they'll say employment is at record levels etc though, nothing to see here. Except their figures are skewed and bordering on lies of course.

So go on there Cooper lad, keep believing in your Brexit fantasy and forgive me for saying so, when the $hit hits the fan I hope its the likes of you that are affected first. [^]

Patiently waiting for some genius to say it nothing to do with Brexit but rise of online shopping.

Retail, particularly on the High Street is struggling. John Lewis are no different. Their standards have also been slipping by all accounts. The other half of their business, Waitrose, has been hammered like all Supermarkets by Lidl and Aldi. Brexit might be a concern for them going forward but it isn't to blame for their years of decline.

What a strange comment to make.

They'll always match or beat the price of any competitor whether it's High Street retailers or on line ones. That goes for items bought in Waitrose.

Uncertainty doesn't help but their brexit complaints seem to be regarding food prices and availability so it is Waitrose that is struggling.

John Lewis is struggling anyway because the entire industry of High Street shopping is struggling.

I think that's part of their problem to be honest. They've got some prime real estate around the country. That's really expensive to run. If you're doing those sorts of prize matches, it's always going to be tough.

JL's second biggest store, Peter Jones, is rented from the Cadogan estate at a guaranteed peppercorn rent. I can see that being the only store that survives. No matter how good they are, if the rest of the high st goes down like dominoes, what can they do?

Maybe it will.. I take medication that I am for the rest of my life. Am I wetting myself of the thought of a no deal brexit it may not be there... nah.

My job will it still be here.... yeah, will my partners... yeah.

Will my daughters education go down the pan... nah.

I don't spend my time wetting myself over every brexit story. I got this up, took my daughter to school and went to work. I didn't compare the yellowhammer document worse than going to war like some on here.

Most of them were too slow to go online so better online only competitors best them to it. A lot of them took a long time especially to do deliveries and you could only click and collect. If people don't want to go into town to go shopping they don't want to go in to pick stuff up either. Amazon is cheaper and more convenient and competes with half the high street on its own. ASOS does the rest.

Saying large retailers wonít be missed, what an absolute whopper that is.

Itís not just the staff and jobs, there is the whole supply chain, literally hundreds of businesses would be impacted, less business rates being paid to councils around the country, large, units being left vacant in big cities, less competition to keep prices down.

Everyone thinks the like of amazon is great now as theyíre super competitive on price. They wonít be when there isnít a high street to compete against and no one can match their scale.

The change in shoppers habits began after WWII with the coming of the supermarket and the promotion of the car in the 60`s.
Building places like Teesside Park drags people in their cars away from traditional town centres.
As for online - Amazon and other traders should be required to pay tax to trade online.
Independent shops in particular cant afford to charge give-away prices: factor in rates / staff / utilities, etc

'Medication really is project fear - stockpiles have been made and plans to deal with those medicines that cannot be stockpiled in place.

My pharmacist, doctor and literally every expert disagrees with this. Apologies if I take their 'hype' over your view. I take 3 different medications at present. 2 of them are currently on the list for medications expected to run low.

A lot of the medications which are expected to run low are for medicines relating to blood or heart issues.

My epilepsy tablets appear to be ok in the short term, but many experts in that field fear that they could also have issues in the future.

At the beginning of August the British Pharmochological Association issued the Severe Shortage Directive which gave guidance to dispensers and prescribers:
It warned:

+ There may be a shortage of medications related to those long term and life - changing conditions such as Epilepsy / Chronic Heart Desease / Parkinsons.

+ It gives authority to prescribers and dispensers to "vary" (!?) dosage according to availability of medication.

+ Clinicians will be given notice in order to inform patients but not to encourage stock-piling of medication.

+ For anyone who is prescribed long term medication it is a worrying time. This is not scaremongering but potentially life threatening.

Good for you.

However, without my medication for me;
Can't work
Can't drive
Can't get any forms of insurance
Can't travel
Fair chance of seizures coming back
Kidney failure (other medication)

So you might be 'more laid back' but I'm fully aware of the consequences. Why would some made up 'will of the people' XXXXXX seem beneficial to me, with all I might end up having to give up?

I've got no issue with leaving with a deal, but a no-deal with real life consequences for me and many others like me, and well anyone who earns less than £100k a year, what's the point really?

Waitrose isnít struggling at all - its pretty stable given the competition.
Problem is in the dept store portfolio - if they were run by Ashley they would hammer the landlords. They donít behave like that though.

They do have a healthy balance sheet and will still post a full year profit.

"Waitrose isnít struggling at all - its pretty stable given the competition."

It is in comparison to its previous self. The brexit warnings from them are about food prices which will be a Waitrose issue, not a John Lewis one. They have had to reduce their margins as inflation has increased because they can't increase their costs due to Aldi & Lidl undercutting the sector.
