Debenhams Axe 320 Store Managers and Blame Online Retailers.

Debenhams have dismissed over 300 Store Managers in an effort to reduce costs as they fight to reduce costs in their battle with online retailers.

Debenhams blame sluggish sales on the effect of online stores who now monopolise markets with their lower prices, like for like quality, and a superior service.

Leading Super Stores and High Street Businesses are announcing closures.

Debenhams are not alone, a number of the leading Super Store and famous High Street Businesses are announcing closures due to the competition from online superstores.

Online Cheaper Shopping Experience.

Debenhams who can trace their original store back to 1850, is not the only store reacting to the Online Cheaper Shopping Experience.

Asda, Marks & Spencer, Tesco, Sainsbury’s, Morrisons and B&Q have all announced plans to reduce expenditure as competition from online stores takes a bigger slice of their market.

320 positions are at risk of redundancy.

Debenhams released a statement; ‘As part of the implementation of the battle with online retailers, a review of our store structure at Debenhams has been undertaken. The review has identified significant cost savings by reducing the complexity of Debenhams Management roles in Debenhams stores as well as processes to optimise and standardise ways of working.’

They added; ‘The effect is that potentially 320 positions are at risk of redundancy at Debenhams – approximately 25% of Debenhams store management roles.

Debenhams are currently consulting with individuals affected and will seek redeployment opportunities where possible. The job cuts at Debenhams are expected to be complete by the end of March.’

Debenhams Share price is down 0.58 percent to 29.15p.

At present, Debenhams share price is down 0.58 percent to 29.15p, and Debenhams said it was operating in a ‘competitive and volatile’ retail environment. As part of its cost savings drive, Debenhams plans to save £10 million this year and an extra £20 million a year thereafter.

Furniture designed by Le Corbusier; Fake or Original.


We go behind the scenes with the fraud busters, and learn how to spot if that LC2 Le Corbusier modern designer sofa or chair is FAKE or ORIGINAL.

Around 100 Counterfeit claims are made every day concerning Le Corbusier Chairs and Sofas.

It is 9 am and Rory our fraud buster has already been at his desk for two hours, scrutinising adverts for Le Corbusier LC2 Sofas and LC2 Chairs.

There’s a Le Corbusier LC2 3-place sofa from a company in West London for £899.00. A Le Corbusier LC2 2-Place sofa for £699.00 from a company in Manchester, and a Le Corbusier LC2 armchair from a company in Liverpool for £499 that does not look correct.

Le Bauhaus has better Quality than Le Corbusier.

Bargain-hunters dream.

They are a bargain-hunters dream. But Rory is not buying. Rory is hunting down criminals who are selling fake modern designer furniture as original modernist furniture by Le Corbusier to unsuspecting members of the public.

And why are these adverts so easily identified as counterfeits? The simple answer is simple – PRICE.

Fakes are one-tenth of the price of an original.

The fakes are easily identifiable because they are one-tenth of the price of an original.

Rory who works in his home office is one of the hundreds of Fake Finders around the world working for the holding company of Le Corbusier who are dedicated to catching criminals in action.


Fakes are as good or better than the originals.

It is a tough job because the quality of fakes is as good or better than the originals.

There are over a billion adverts worldwide at any one time advertising fake Le Corbusier LC2 modern designer furniture.

LC2 by Le Corbusier is the most illegally copied model.

The LC2 by Le Corbusier is the most copied model and the number one objective of the fraud busters is to root out the rip-offs and fakes.

Around 24 million buyers and sellers in the world are involved in this scam. With 1.1 billion listings live at any one time, it is an enormous, and expensive undertaking to stop the fraud.

Why are there so many suppliers and buyers of FAKE Le Corbusier Armchairs and Sofas?

There are so many suppliers and buyers of fake LC2 modernist furniture by Le Corbusier for two reasons.

First; The LC2 Le Corbusier is the most iconic modern designer furniture collection in the History of Modern Designer Furniture.

Second; The LC2 Le Corbusier sold by the official license holders is ridiculously expensive.

Compare the price- compare the quality.

An original 3-place sofa from the license holders cost around 10,000 Euros.

A FAKE copy of the LC2 Le Corbusier 3- place sofa costs around 990 Euros.

Surprise, surprise, it is difficult to believe, but the quality of a FAKE is normally better than the original and one-tenth of the price.

Which one would you buy? FAKE or Original?

10,000 euros versus 990 euros. Identical model. And for 990 euros you have a better quality sofa.

The choice is easy- and that is why there are so many FAKE LC2 Le Corbusier Sofas in the world today.
