The local supermarket chain, Booths, is expected to cut 100 jobs across Lancashire.


The announcement was made as part of a managerial restructure within the company, and will see heads of department and assistant manager roles form three new management positions with ‘greater accountability and responsibility’.


Despite this, the Preston-based chain continues to grow as new stores have been opened, or are scheduled to open in the near future. The new stores in Barrowford and Hale Barns alone have said to have created 400 full-time and part-time jobs.

St. Annes is also set to receive a state-of-the-art store, and Teanlowe Centre in Poulton-le-Fylde will see the redevelopment of a store there.

Booths Retail Director, Paul Minett said: “Booths is entering a very exciting phase of development and the new stores are at the cutting edge both in terms of design and artisan food offer and quality.

“The customer experience is at the heart of we do, and we’re focusing on the things that matter most to our customers – service, availability and quality.”

“To support this, that means a simplified and more accountable management structure, trading from an estate of profitable, vibrant stores. The difficult and tough decisions that we make now will ensure that Booths continues to have a bright and profitable future for generations to come.”
