Boots and John Lewis cut thousands of jobs – BBC News

Two of the UK’s biggest High Street retailers, John Lewis and Boots, have announced more than 5,000 job cuts.

4,000 jobs will go at Boots and 48 Boots Opticians stores will be closed.

1,300 jobs are at risk at John Lewis which is shutting eight of its stores, including one of its flagship shops in Birmingham.

It comes amid warnings that the Chancellor’s massive new economic support package will not be enough to stop millions of workers losing their jobs.
