Media reports claim the company could move into administration today and that the firm had termed this as “extremely likely”

McColls has a wholesale agreement with Martin’s Newsagent and also Morrisons supermarket which according to Sky News has proposed a deal to inject funds to stop it collapsing, saving most branches and jobs.
