This follows the announcement of 22 store closures at the start of August, which included stores in Birkenhead, Rochdale, Widnes, Bolton, Burnley, Chester, Stretford, Macclesfield and St Helens.

Tom Jack, joint administrator at EY, said: "A purchaser for these remaining stores was not found, and regrettably we have had to schedule these final store closures. We are extremely grateful to the employees and management at all the Group's stores for their loyalty and support during this very difficult time.

"During the administration we are pleased to have been successful in selling six TJ Hughes stores, which has safeguarded over 700 jobs across the UK."

Earlier this month, Lewis's Home Retail, a sister company of wholesale firm the Benross Group, based in Liverpool, acquired four TJs stores and the TJHughes.co.uk website.
