[Merry Christmas from the redundant staff]

This sign in the window of my local off-license saddened me just before Christmas. The shop's stock had been extremely limited of late so it wasn't a surprise to hear Unwins was going out of business. But it was clearly going to be hard on the staff who now recognised me when I popped in for an Irn-Bru on my way to the cinema.

[Better days: stocked and open]

So catching a glimpse of the shop open, fully stocked and with the same staff behind the till today was a delight. Redundant, then back in the same job a few weeks later. Cause for a celebratory drink if ever I saw one.
