Peacocks move to reassure shoppers it will not fly the nest
MANAGEMENT at a Peacocks store in Wisbech has moved to reassure shoppers they are here to stay after fears from local consumers about the future of the shop.
The store, which has ruled the roost in the Horsefair Shopping Centre for over a decade, is one of the 388 stores to stay open after a nationwide cull lead to 224 stores across the country being closed.
Store manager Glenn Hyam confirmed they are not one of the shops being closed and they will be open for business as usual.
This comes after Mr. Hyam claimed some local shoppers were reluctant to purchase goods in case they were unable to return them should the store close.
However, with the Horsefair Centre store still trading, he hopes the people of Wisbech will be strutting about with their colourful new summer collection in the next few months.

He said: “Now that we know that this store is definitely staying open we can look forward with our new owner EWN Group to offering our customers the products, prices and service they’re used to. They should feel completely confident that we are staying put.”
“We’ve got a great range of summer clothing and accessories in store now and shoppers can expect the same high levels of customer service they have come to expect since we opened the doors over a decade ago.”
