Well, I'm thinking of not having to make NMs responsible for this as there is already quite a bit of stuff they have to do, take in, deal with.

The shop is flawed. I don't have time to post on here when things are sold and run the kitchen at the same time. Night managers don't know anything about it most of the time. Solution - only Kitchen Managers have keys to the Shop and we keep a book in a drawer. The Shop is open between 10am-6:30pm. ...

If some are smaller maybe we should sell at £1.45 or something, just to mark the difference.

Or should we stick to what we always have?
