UK: Two more TJ Hughes stores saved
Administrators for discount department store retailer TJ Hughes have sold two more of its stores to Lewis' Home Retail Ltd, saving 134 jobs.
The homewares company has bought the Widnes and Newcastle stores. The news follows a deal agreed last week that will see Lewis' Home Retail Ltd buy the TJ Hughes flagship store at London Road, Liverpool, together with outlets in Eastbourne, Glasgow and Sheffield.
Joint Administrator Tom Jack said: "We are delighted to have completed another deal, which protects further jobs across the North and brings the total number of jobs saved to 576."
Ernst & Young joint administrators Tom Jack and Simon Allport continue to seek a sale of the company's remaining business and assets, while trading stock through the group's remaining stores.
