Reprieve for BHS workers
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.
