      I work for Asda in Warrington town centre with a Sainsburys 100 yards down the road.

      Asda and Sainsburys bosses saying there will be no loss of jobs or store closures as a result as a result of their merge.

      Off down the job centre after work.

      I never understand why companies lie like that, its much better to be up front with people even when its bad news.

      For the consumer theres no real change except a supposed 10% saving on your shopping. Asda will continue to be Asda and sainsburys will continue to be Sainsburys  (basically no green and orange uniform haha) Sainsburys also own Argos so there's potential that they will put Argos  stores within Asdas now too.

      All we've been told is that there's no risk of store or job losses but like I say theres a Sainsburys down the road and an Argos right outside our place.

      The group who will pass the deal (the CMA) will be getting very worried about their share in the market being too big and unfair on the rest and the rumour is that to placate their fears Asda/Sainsburys will have to close stores anyway.

      In warrington alone we have 3 asdas and 2 Sainsburys. Something will surely have to give.

      On the distribution side things look even worse. Theres no chance they will need 2 seperate head quarters any more.

      No staff were told anything about the deal and we all only heard through the media. Got a handout on the Sunday saying details couldn't be discussed while talks were ongoing and heard very little today too really.

      I will miss that job if it comes to it because of the hours (5x 5-13.00) with the rest of the day to myself haha.

      Yeah probably won't hear anything until the deal has been completed.

      Hope it's good news for you anyway, mate.

      I think they are just standing like that after inserting objects in peculiar places.
