A further 122 employees at warehouses will be retained to assist in winding-down operations.

Piers Morgan riles Meghan Markle fans with banana mockery
But the former actress is going with whatever feels right for her, regardless of the rules. "She's acting great at the moment". During the breakfast show, he said: "Giving a sex worker a banana is clearly exposing them to potential mockery".
KPMG, the administrators of music shop HMV, on Tuesday revealed the names of the 27 stores that will be closing under a proposed rescue deal for the chain, which went bust at the end of a year ago.
Staff at the affected stores are being spoken to today (February 5) and a list of the shops affected is expected later today.
"By catering to music and entertainment lovers, we are incredibly excited about the opportunity to engage customers with a diverse range of physical format content and replicate our success in Canada".
"Our immediate concern is now to support those employees that have unfortunately been made redundant".
We hope that Government will play its part in helping to sustain important employers like HMV by reviewing the high levels of business rates that disadvantage physical stores compared to online traders.
