Peter Watts

Tribute to Jack Goldin

Peter Watts

At Christmas time Head Office allocated a senior staff to each store to help during the Festive Season. The late Peter Watts, of blessed memory, was allocated to my store. On this particular day we had worked hard and decided to have a quick bite. Three Anchor Bay, with a predominantly Jewish clientele, was not particularly busy over the Christmas period and lunchtime was not as hectic as in many of the other stores. Whilst we were eating, drinking and talking the office door opened unexpectedly . There stood Mr. Goldin staring at both of us. He had caught us red-handed eating, talking over lunchtime during Christmas and in the office. He said to us “by all means you are both entitled to take a lunch break, but there must always be a Senior Staff member on the floor “. His systems were simple, logical and down-to-earth!

Mr Peter Watts was promoted to Warehouse and Equipment Manager at Head Office in September 1975
