Past their shelf-life

Sainsbury’s is axing 2,000 store and back office roles as the supermarket chain looks to slash costs by £500m.

Tesco is shedding 2,300 staff as part of its cost-cutting programme.

Asda has axed nearly 300 jobs at its head office as part of a cost-cutting drive.

the number of jobs in the UK retail sector slumped by 62,000 in the second quarter of 2017 (partly because of the collapse of BHS, which sparked 11,000 job losses.)
It has been predicted that there will be 900,000 fewer jobs in the sector by 2020
