THE FUTURE for staff at Spalding’s Focus store was unclear yesterday as the national DIY chain went into administration.

Directors at Focus, which has a store in Winfrey Avenue, appointed Ernst & Young as administrators yesterday.

A statement released by the company said: “Following notification of an event of default under the senior credit facility, and a realisation that there were no alternatives that could be explored any further, Focus has come to the conclusion that they have no choice but to seek protection through filing a notice of intention to appoint administrators.”
