What a fascinating background Terry Leahy has. We hear lots of talk about lack of opportunities for children from poorer backgrounds, but we never seem to be told about those who are successful; other than footballers of course.
Yes,I didn't realise that either.

For some years after my retirement from "the day job" I worked for Tesco and met him on a few occasions. Every Friday he was away from his office visiting stores around the country (unannounced). He was a very pleasant chap who clearly hadn't forgotten his humbler roots and would chat with staff on the shop floor (not just managers) and would actually ask what they thought about how things were going and genuinely take on board what he was told. A shame there aren't more CEOs like him.

Regards.

Woollies UK was a great place for tacky Christmas decorations, but unfortunately the 'tacky' stayed all year round.

I wonder how much they made from the 'pick n mix'?

I imagine it was quite a substantial amount if my spending level on Pick n Mix was any indication
