JOBS at a retail giant’s Hatfield store hang in the balance after Comet went into administration today (Thursday).
The Oldings Corner shop is one of the 240 stores nationwide that face an uncertain future.
A spokesman for the firm said: “We don’t have any regional information in terms of store, I’m afraid all we have is a national statement saying the company is in administration.
“We won’t get any information until next week.”
In a statement released to the press the firm said: “Comet Group Limited can confirm that it has today taken steps to seek the protection of the court with a view to the company entering into administration during week commencing November 5 2012.
“In the meantime the board is urgently working with its advisers to seek a solution to secure a viable future for the company.”
