Administrators have announced that they are to close a further 80 Poundworld stores around the UK, 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 and leave Poundworld with just 230 open branches.

Deloitte has turned down a bid for Poundworld from its founder, Chris Edwards, who was looking to save a raft of stores and safeguard around 3,000 jobs.

The Press Association has since revealed that the founder of rival Poundland, Steven Smith, is in early-stage talks about a bid to salvage part of Poundworld out of administration.
