Chapman: Good news for Aberdare store

Speaking after the announcement that Peacocks had been sold to Edinburgh Woollen Mill, Cynon Valley AM Christine Chapman released the following statement:

“I welcome the announcement that Peacocks is to be bought by Edinburgh Woollen Mill, which is good news for the majority of staff working for the company. This is, however, tempered by sadness for the people employed in the stores that will be closing.

“It is great that the store in Aberdare will remain open, and I am sure the announcement came as a big relief to staff and their families. Many people in Cynon Valley work or know people who work in other stores such as Pontypridd or in Peacocks’ main offices or warehouse – this news will also be welcome to them.

“It is good that this much-loved brand will remain on our high street”.
