Eason unveils turnaround plans The Bookseller

Irish union Siptu has said it would “completely oppose” any compulsory redundancies enforced by bookselling chain Eason, as m.d Conor Whelan outlines turnaround plans for the retailer.

Last week Eason announced it would invest €20m (£17.6m) over three years in the company, derived from cost savings, cash reserves and asset disposals. It will spend the money on overhauling outdated IT systems and redesigning some of its 60 shops. At the same time, the firm will embark on a restructure aiming to make €8m cost savings over the course of three years.
