I'm surprised there hasn't been more than 100! It's a beautiful store - love shopping there. Hopefully it will give an opportunity to people who have been out of work a while and allow them to get something longer term.

Only 100... I am surprised.
I thought everyone was looking for work?
Great company to work for and I am sure it would have good prospects with oportunities to progress.
How many are unemployed in Swindon? How many with retail experience?
