Plans to break up and dissolve what's left of retail chain Comet are progressing, with new reports claiming 41 branches are going to close by the end of November.

While the chain's administrators work out what to do with the rest of the broken electronics retailer, 41 shops will close this month, and while some redundancies are inevitable, the current plan is to ship off as many staff as possible to local branches that are remaining open for the time being, delaying the suffering a little and keeping the bulk of the group open for the Christmas rush.
