Usdaw 'delighted' as iconic Lewis's store in Liverpool is saved

RETAIL union Usdaw says the takeover of the iconic Lewis's store by Vergo Retail is fantastic news for union members who have done a magnificent job in keeping the store open after it went into administration.

Usdaw's local officials have worked closely with union members at the department store to keep them informed of any developments and support them through the uncertainty after the administrators were called in.

"Usdaw is absolutely delighted that Lewis's has been saved as it's such a historic part of Liverpool's retail heritage and there's no doubt our members have played an absolutely key role in keeping the store alive.

They've come into work day after day not knowing what the future held for them but they've been totally professional and kept the tills ringing so Lewis's became a viable proposition for any new owners.  The administrators Kroll have also done a great job is keeping the doors open past their deadlines for closure as they sought a new owner for this iconic store.

But our members would like to thank the people of Liverpool who have rallied around streaming through the doors to spend money and regain the 'Lewis's Habit' so the new owners have a great platform to build the new store on.

We'd appeal to Liverpool shoppers to keep going into Lewis's and make sure the store can take advantage of the retail opportunities offered by the City of Culture next year. 

Usdaw will be sitting down with Vergo next week to discuss their plans for the business and keep our members fully informed as the new owners take Lewis's forward."  says Usdaw national officer John Gorle.
