Peacocks store to reopen in Cumbrian town

Workington's Peacocks store will reopen tomorrow more than two months after its sudden closure.

The Murray Road clothes shop will open at 9am after a rescue deal by Edinburgh Woollen Mill.

It closed suddenly in February, with the loss of 13 jobs, after its parent company went bust.

More than of the chain’s shops were taken over by Edinburgh Woollen Mill but the Workington branch was one of 224 stores not included in the deal. Since then the firm, which is owned by Philip Day, of Brampton, has bought the shop.

Thirteen staff have been taken on.

Julie Williamson, who has been taken back on as assistant manager, said: “When I got the phone call last Friday to say it was reopening I was chuffed to bits. I was ecstatic.”
