Midweek Sport - - NEWS -

THOU­SANDS of BHS work­ers have been given a short reprieve af­ter it emerged the de­part­ment store chain’s re­main­ing 57 shops will be kept open longer than planned.

Ad­min­is­tra­tors to the re­tailer had put a dead­line of Au­gust 20 for all out­lets to close, but this has been pro­vi­sion­ally ex­tended to Au­gust 28.

Duff & Phelps and FRP Ad­vi­sory will keep the stores open un­til stock has run out as they look to max­imise re­turns. Work­ers will con­tinue to be paid un­til the stores close, af­ter which they will be made re­dun­dant.
