Worrying news that retailer Comet is heading towards administration. The Financial Times says that the end could come as soon as Thursday 1 November. An article in the paper goes on to say that the company which was bought by a private investment firm earlier in the year hit problems when stocking up for Christmas.
Locally there is a large out of town Comet store at the Wey retail park in Byfleet. We can only hope the chain is rescued and jobs are secured.
