Peacocks – which has shops in Derbyshire – bought out of administration but not all stores will reopen
The collapsed fashion chain Peacocks – which has stores in Derbyshire – has been bought out of administration.
The buyers are an international consortium, led by Peacocks’ former chief operating officer, Steve Simpson.
Peacocks had 400 shops going into the pandemic a year ago, including in Alfreton, Ripley and Ilkeston.
The company’s management team hopes to reopen up to 200 stores once non-essential retailers are allowed out of lockdown next week, saving 2,000 jobs.
It has not yet been revealed which outlets will reopen.
