Glass shop owners are on the lookout for a new buyer for their business.
They can expect to sell their business to a bigger buyer or go bust in the next couple of years.
The industry has seen an increase in turnover and competition since the Brexit vote, which has put a lot of glass shop owners out of business.
A recent survey of glass workers by the Glassworkers’ Federation found the number of jobs at shops with a turnover of more than £10m was down.
But it is still very much a business.
It employs around 5,000 people, who earn around £5,000 per year, according to the trade body Glassworkers.
So what are they going to do now that the Brexit process has been over?
Most of the shops that have already closed will probably be re-opened with new owners.
But there are some new owners who have already been looking at buying the business.
That is why the Glassshop Association is now campaigning for a wholesale deal to be struck between the UK’s largest glass supplier, Glassworks, and a third party buyer, Glasscraft.
This would include a sale of the glass shop, but would also include the Glassworks brand and its iconic packaging.
This wholesale deal would mean Glasscraft and Glassworks would be selling the business at a discount to Glassworks and the glassware manufacturer, who could then sell the business to an independent buyer.
But the glass industry says it has a vested interest in keeping the shop open, which is why it has set up the Glass Shop Association to try to convince the UK government to grant it a wholesale licence to keep the shop and its logo.
Glassmakers say they want to continue to offer customers a range of products, from decorative glass to high-end glass, and their trade body, the Glasscraft Glassworkers, is now working on plans to set up a trade body to negotiate these sales.
But some of the more senior glassworkers at the Glass shop are worried about the prospect of a wholesale sale.
The Glassworkers say there is no guarantee the government would grant a licence.
They also say the Glasswork trade body will not get involved in the sale of their business if Glasscraft does not get its way.
The group is also trying to persuade the Government to take action on its Glasscraft concerns, which it has also lodged with the Trade Secretary.
It is also lobbying the Trade and Investment Secretary, Liam Fox, to hold a public consultation to discuss whether the UK should offer a licence for Glasscraft’s wholesale business.
But with the Brexit negotiations continuing, and the Glass industry facing a lot more uncertainty, many people are not convinced it is worth putting the Glassmaker’s business at risk.
But they say the public is not being told the full story about what could happen if Glassmakers future with the business is up for grabs.
‘If Glasscraft dies I’m done’ What can you do if you think you might be next?
There are a number of steps you can take to protect your investment in the glass business.
There are several ways you can protect yourself.
First of all, you should contact your bank, the credit card company or the company you are using to shop at and ask them to stop paying your bills.
If you have to make a phone call or go to the store to pay, it is a good idea to do it in person.
It could mean you will need to take out a second credit card or bank transfer to get your money out of your account.
You can also call your local council and ask it to hold off on making any purchases until you get a phone and an appointment to meet with them.
This is called a “time out”.
If you do not get a good reply from the council, it may mean the council has already made a decision and is now giving the Glassmakers a deadline for them to close.
If this is the case, you can use the Money Advice Service to get advice from a local solicitor.
If it takes a while to get through the council’s time out process, contact your local consumer protection organisation and tell them what action you think they should take.
You might also want to consider whether you can borrow money to buy your glasses, or whether you might need to borrow money yourself.
You should always have a strong financial plan in place and make sure you have enough cash to pay for the items you want to buy.
If the glass is in good condition, you could buy a replacement glass kit at a local hardware store.
There is also a good chance that if the glass gets damaged, you might get some compensation.
However, this is not guaranteed and there are a lot who will refuse to take your glass back unless you buy it at a retail store.
If that happens, you need a legal protection if you want your glass to be returned to you.
If your glass gets badly damaged and you cannot return it to the shop, there are two options: you can go to court and demand compensation, or you can sue the shop owner.
