A rescue deal for the stricken high street chain, organised by the owner of HMV, Doug Putman, fell through on September 11. The store in the Meridian Shopping Centre in Havant will become a Poundland, after an agreement was reached for the administrators to sell a number of stores to Pepco.
Staff at the store will be given priority for new jobs when applications open. The store will close this Thursday (September 21).
Administrators have now said the shop in the Market Quay Shopping Centre in West Street, Fareham, will shut its doors for the final time on September 28.
