I’m down south and haven’t seen anything to do with them. I’ve not heard anything through timp either. I wouldn’t be surprised now if they did come back though. They probably pay more than timp do so I’m sure a lot of people would jump ship.

minit is bigger company than timpsons

I wouldn’t say they was bigger according to their site they operate 281 shops which is nothing compared to timpson which are probably easily around 1700 shops now not including their others shops.

They’ve got at least 950 in Europe. They’ll have a lot more in Australia and Japan too

wouldn't say they were better payers than Timpson , I left them in 1985 best thing I ever did , now you can slag timpsons all you like (im no fan ) but I worked for both and timpsons were  much better employers

I heard the tale off a fella at cutting edge, don't realy think its anything to worry about, after all were the original mister minit  serious competition to any one think if they do come back it will be as a franchise  ( hope they don't want as much money as  mr crafstsmans workshop ?)

Has anyone actually confirmed that this is true? Anyone seen or supplied one of the shops? Anyone know what they are calling themselves?

I'd imagine looking at the date of the original post, this refers to Cando4U. They have 3 or 4 shops in Somerset, owned and run by the Harris family one time directors (?) of Minit.
