I find myself in anticipation everyday now, anxious to learn about what happened in one of my friend’s office for the day in question. He works for a large local retail company, which I shan’t divulge the identity of. Its always been a stable company, and thats one of the reasons why he’s been there for the past 11 years.
But, with a recent change in the GM, things seem to be taking a sharp downturn. I heard that this GM, doesn’t even have the necessary retail knowledge. This person has been systematically removing key persons form the team, and putting in the cronies. 🙂 Demoting the previous head of merchandising to simply “Special Projects” and barring her from all merchandising meetings.
There is so much drama, you won’t believe it. Ha ha ha….
Sales have plummeted, and in fact I just heard that the recent sale didn’t do well, and as a result, the GM is thinking of some drastic measures. how drastic? …..hmmmm… how about putting up stores at the local suburban pasar malam? or what about getting a license from Singapore Pools for a 4D betting outlet in the retail store?
HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA… Even without retail knowledge and experience, I can tell that these are ridiculous and stupid decisions. Clearly the reaction of someone who doesn’t have a clue as to how to proceed. I give the new GM another 3 months. HA HA HA HA HA HA HA
