Chief shop stewards have expressed their shock at the extensive consultative negotiations announced on Monday by Kesko. In addition to the eight Anttila department stores set for closure, the retailer is now intent on shutting down four Kodin1 stores within the next two years. In a bulletin released on Monday, Kesko also revealed that it is exploring the option of selling Anttila.
