Commenting on the news that 11 Peacocks stores are to close in Wales, Mid and West Wales AM Joyce Watson said:
“Four of the 11 stores closing in Wales – around a third of the jobs going – are in Mid and West Wales. It’s a huge blow to those families, to those towns and High Streets.
“My immediate concern is that everyone who has lost their job receives all the support they’re entitled to, and I will be seeking assurances from the Government that this happens.
Joyce, who sits on the Assembly’s Business and Enterprise Committee, added:
“Obviously, the buy-out is very good news for the seven stores in the region that have been saved, and a huge relief for the 80 staff employed at them.
