Wrexham’s Comet Store Under Threat

NOTE: This content is old - Published: Thursday, Nov 1st, 2012.

It is predicted that retailer Comet could enter administration as early as this morning, putting up to 6,000 jobs at risk.

Deloitte are expected to come in and run the company under administration. It appears the issue is with stocking for Christmas and ‘trading without credit insurance’ – basically protection for suppliers if Comet went bust.

Locally educated MoneySavingExpert.com expert Martin Lewis tweeted around midnight saying :

Comet was sold to OpCapita for a whopping £2 last year – the same company who bought MFI for £1, with MFI subsequently collapsing.

Wrexham’s store is just off Mount Street in the town centre.

Update 12:40pm

The BBC is reporting Comet has confirmed that it will be put into administration next week.
