GMB Union has issued an update on Wilko after meeting administrators.
Andy Prendergast, GMB National Secretary, said:
“GMB has met with administrators and the company as part of the formal consultation process.
“We can confirm there have been expressions of interest from organisations who are considering taking over at least some parts of the business.
“These are still at an early stage, but means there are genuine grounds for hope.
“Whilst this process continues staff will continue to be paid and kept on. All stores are continuing to trade, and deliveries of new stock will continue.”
