So this restaurant may never actually open now. The decision has been taken to close all McDonald's restaurants in the UK and Ireland , I'm assuming till the crisis has cleared. They'll all be closed by 7pm tomorrow night.
Must be a blow for the owner though.
Let's be honest.... It will open at some point.
It will be a blow for the workers too.
However in these unprecedented times I do applaud the businesses out there that are choosing to close and are putting their workers (and the public) health before profits.
Totally agree that the welfare of the workforce is absolutely paramount.
As an aside I heard that some businesses have had to close so that their employees can get the 80% wages from Boris.
They can't claim it if the business is still partially open apparently.
Hopefully the businesses can make up the rest of the wages for those affected.
I heard that too.
So apparently, from my understanding, those pubs doing takeouts won’t be able to claim the 80% government backed salary for their workers.
From a very incomplete survey of about a dozen pubs, four pubs have said that they have had to scrap their plans to do takeaways for this reason and five are doing takeaways. Across the country a lot of pubs & restaurants are doing takeaways. Trying to find what is behind this story without much success at the moment.
The former Wedding Dress shop by Best Atlas Kebab House has been painted pinky purple and is now a Thai Massage Place.
Do they do Thai brides as well?
The terms haven’t be laid out terribly well yet, unfortunately. It’s if they can’t work and can’t be paid, doesn’t say the business has to be closed but we shall see
It's always nice when a story finishes with a happy ending.
Legitimate business or not. When my house goes on the market and they approach Marston road a pinky purple Thai massage establishment is likely to put people off.
Some folk might see it as a perk of the property
My wife works at beauticians in Stafford. That shop has been forced to close because its not 'essential'. She has been advised that she will be entitled to 80% of her wages. We will wait and see.
Tbh our biggest expenditure (other than bills and kids) is spent on eating and drinking out, so I suspect we will be better off and will lose some weight!!
We are more fortunate than most because I am still able to work from home. I hope everyone else that may be struggling financially do get the help they need and we get through this as quickly as possible.
Post house work has continued, new tile flooring is down but in sections they polishing up the original wood floors.
Central bar that was there when you walk in via the main entrance has gone and opened up with what looks like a small reception area to the left.
Loads of sanding down of doors and windows going on outside.
New indian restaurant at the top of mill street (off the hook location)almost finished being decked out. Begins with an O but couldn't make out name driving past. Shame it is not a different style of food but good that the unit is taken and Mill Street continues to be on the up
Is that the old Nag's Head pub … ? shown here on the right in 1978 ...
Was there no clock outside Peter Rogers in those days?
