The Chronicle - - National -

AD­MIN­IS­TRA­TORS are to close a fur­ther 80 Pound­world stores, re­sult­ing in 1,024 job losses at the col­lapsed dis­count re­tailer.

Deloitte, which is over­see­ing the process, has strug­gled to sell the busi­ness as a whole, but said the lat­est raft of clo­sures will not af­fect a po­ten­tial deal for the re­main­ing busi­ness.

The 80 stores will all close over the week­end of July 20-22 leav­ing Pound­world with just 230 open branches.
