Evesham staff get Xmas bonus

PRP is back

The good times are here again for staff at Evesham.com - profit related pay (PRP) has returned to pad out Christmas pay packets.

The company stopped the scheme last year after suffering tough trading from June to December 2000.

Following that the company laid off 20 staff and ditched its freephone customer support line in January 2001.

Things have picked up since then. Company spokeswoman Carolyn Worth said: "It became obvious from September that there'd be enough profits for PRP."

Staff will get extra money in December, then in May and October next year.

Evesham is also continuing its glacial speed retail roll out. The company's fourteenth store has just opened in Altrincham near Manchester. This comes more than 12 months after its last outlet opened. ®
