THE first head office staff have lost their jobs at the huge Borders UK book store chain which went into receivership at the weekend.
A total of 36 employees at the London HQ were made redundant yesterday, just four weeks before Christmas.
“A number of positions have become redundant,” said Administrator Phil Duffy said in a statement last night. “We have undertaken a review of the company’s operations in the context of an Administration and consequently identified employee redundancies being made today.”
But workers at the branches up and down the country have not been hit, so far.

Mr Duffy added: “This in no way impacts the business at a store level and I can confirm that no redundancies have been made in stores.”
But the administrators announced on Saturday closing down’ sales at all 45 branches. They are now looking for a buyer for all or some of Borders’ stores while carrying out the closing down’ sales.
