Comet's administrator Deloitte has praised the stricken chain's employees for their "professionalism, loyalty and support" after announcing a further 735 redundancies.
Joint Administrator Chris Farrington said:
Discussions continue to take place with parties who have expressed interest in parts of the business.
However, it is unfortunately necessary to begin a store closure programme and to scale back the company’s support functions.
While we will continue to do all we can to preserve jobs, we are working hard to put in place comprehensive support to help those employees who are made redundant during the Administration.
