Burberry Stops Production in Wales
They've already been in trouble with Peta this summer, but I somehow doubt that Burberry is very popular in North Wales at the moment either, where they've just announced the closure of one of their factories, and the loss of 300 jobs.
Rumour has it that the fashion house is to move its operation overseas to Asia, where production costs are lower. But of course. Whether or not a "Made in China" label will help their sales, God only knows (and I guess those losing their jobs in Wales don't much care anyway). Burberry has stressed that this is a one-off move, and that, as one of Britain's most famous design houses, it will not be abandoning the UK completely. Hmmm.
