Managing director John George (pictured) said that following its purchase of all 53 Go Mobile outlets, everything was on track to have the deal completed by January 1 following the move, where all Go Mobile signage will switch to JAG branding.
George added that he will recruit around 53 sales executives – one per new outlet – and revealed that fitting will begin in new shops in Portswood, Southampton and Dorchester, Dorset at the start of January.
“Everything is on track and we have more outlets planned for early 2008,” said George. “It looks like being an exciting start to the year.”
George has introduced an advent calendar system for top-performing staff for each day until Christmas.
A sales person or store manager will be awarded gifts ranging from invitations to unveil the retailer’s 2008 Touring Car next season to high-tech stand-on electric scooters.
“It’s not been the busiest period in the lead-up to Christmas so this is to make it a more enjoyable time for our staff and to keep them motivated,” he said.
