The announcement that more than 6,000 jobs are at risk at high-street electrical chain Comet is a timely reminder of the importance of the support Retail Trust provides to all retail staff.
Comet employees are facing an uncertain future, and Argos staff are also awaiting further news after it was announced that 75 stores will close or be relocated over the next five years.
In addition, the likes of JJB Sports, Game, Peacocks and Blacks Leisure have recently been forced to close hundreds of stores, resulting in thousands of job losses.
The Retail Trust Helpline provides free, confidential and independent advice and support for all staff affected by such developments. To contact the Helpline, call 0808 801 0808 (Outside UK number +44 845 766 0113), email email@example.com or text HELPLINE to 88010
The Helpline also provides access to Retail Trust's ReWork programme, which provides a range of free services to help retail staff find their next job, including workshops and career coaching.
