Off-licence saved

AN off-licence chain with a branch in South Elmsall has been bought out of administration, saving 425 jobs.

Rhythm and Booze - which has a store on Barnsley Road - went into administration after getting into financial difficulties during an ambitious expansion plan.

But the company was bought out of administration by Bibby Retail Services (BRS) at the end of last month.

All 68 stores and 425 employees will be transferred to BRS, which will now look at growing the wholesale arms of Rhythm & Booze and converting some of its 68 sites into convenience stores.

Rhythm and Booze was founded in Doncaster almost 20 years ago.
