Lancashire Telegraph: Jobs in Blackburn and Burnley saved after superstore UGO is sold to Poundstretcher Jobs in Blackburn and Burnley saved after superstore UGO is sold to Poundstretcher

ABOUT 25 jobs at discount stores in Blackburn and Burnley have been saved after the group was sold.

This week, signs were put up at UGO, which has stores at Montague Street, Blackburn, and Queen’s Lancashire Way, Burnley, saying stock checks were taking place throughout the stores.

And now, administrators from The P&A Partnership have sold the stores to the Poundstretcher chain.

It is estimated that the Blackburn store employs 18 people, with seven in Burnley.

A total of 245 jobs have been saved across the country, with all staff transferring to the new firm immediately.

The 20 UGO stores in the North and the East Midlands opened last January in former Netto premises.

Oh goody, another cheapo store! Actually, from my area to town there are not much in the way of roads to cross. Never frequented Do-It-All due to once in town on foot (no transport) having to cross the road near the roundabout end of St. James St.
