Shame that it's come to this with large retail stores not being able to keep up with modern times, but all I can think now is fire sales!

Unfortunately, some stores bring it on themselves, and in that case, it's hard for me to feel any sympathy for them; GAME being the latest case. I won't be surprised to see them go back into administration next year. Maybe HMV will follow suit too.


But indeed, firesales! Good thing I've saved most of my student loan so far; I'll wait and see what comes up.

I think the last time I was in Comet was almost seven years ago, and it was to buy the limited edition of Perfect Dark Zero, just after the 360 came out.

Really feel sorry for the folks that might possibly be out of a job just before Christmas because of this.

I think I got my first Playstation from Comet way back when. Thinking about it, the fact that I would get excited about a trip to Comet or Currys was probably a good indicator that I was going to end up in IT. All those electronics, all those buttons to push!

This is sad news for my nostalgia. :(

Comet staff offered Christmas jobs by Dixons



The electrical chain Dixons is offering Christmas jobs to hundreds of Comet staff who face redundancy because their firm is insolvent.

Comet's administrators, appointed last week, are keeping its stores open in the hope of finding a buyer.

But the outlook for the 7,000 staff is bleak and they all face potential redundancy.

Sebastian James, chief executive of Dixons Retail, said 500 Comet staff had already approached his firm.

"We are taking on a total of 3,000 people -2,000 in the stores," he told the BBC.



"We have delayed our recruitment so that Comet colleagues who want to join our stores can get a chance to do so.

"We are hoping we will get as many as possible of the Comet colleagues to join us," he added.

Mr James explained that the Comet staff were attractive to Dixons because they already know about its business - which includes Currys and PC World - its customers, and the products it sells.

However he said that Dixons would not be trying to buy any Comet stores from the administrators.

"As we look across the country we are pretty much on all the same parks they are, so it doesn't really make sense for us to do that," he said.
