Emu has been working in World`s End shop now for a little over 12 months. Originating from Yokohama in Japan she has been in England now for 10 years & lives with her husband & 3 year old daughter somewhere in Kent. She has always liked the Westwood brand & particularly has had her eye on a pair of rocking horse ballerina shoes. Unfortunately she found that due to health & safety concerns about the sloping floor of the shop, she was not allowed to wear these at work.
She says that her daughter loves to wear a `I`m not a terrorist` t-shirt (£25 for 2-4year olds) at her nursery as she has heard so much about terrorists that she feels quite trendy wearing it. Emu herself likes to wear a shirtwaster dress (£290) or the envelope blouse (£185) & mini kilt (£280) at work.
Her worst experience whilst working in the shop was when 4 girls came in on a flash robbery whilst one of the best things about the job is helping the customers to whom World`s End is something of an historical Mecca & who are filled with emotion when they visit. Some of them cry she says.
We thank Emu for her work & maybe we can do something about the health & safety issues. After all shop manager Lisa always wears high heels in the shop. She says it makes it easier to change the light bulbs.
