Here at Burton Brothers we have got some very exciting news. Jim Harrison, who has been here with Burton Brothers sine he was 55, has hit 70 but says he enjoys work to much to retire! Jim started out at the tender age of 13 selling fruit and vegetables in his home town of Wallsend, which can be found at the eastern end of Hadrians Wall. He obviously had a flair for sales and went on to spend his working life in various sales, management and marketing roles within the retail food industry and later in the DIY trade. He has enjoyed it so much here that he has decided to stay on and highly praises Burton Brothers, saying we are probably the nicest people he has ever worked for. He adds that he has a lovely customer base and only lives round the corner so its meant to be!
