However, from comments posted on Jim's Loire recently, things appear pretty gloomy for the Oddbins' workforce with five made redundant from the warehouse yesterday. Apparently they were told that a single buyer hadn't been found and that the remaining shops would be split up.
See also a report today in harpers.
Update@16.44: still no news – negotiations still on-going. Presumably with several parties if rumours and the harpers report is right. I guess negotations over selling batches of shops. Will anyone get the right to the Oddbins brand?
