It will be a sober Christmas for Unwins staff this year after it emerged that all of its 350 stores - including five in the Luton area - have closed.
The chain has made a total of 1,400 workers redundant, after accountants KPMG were called in as administrators on Monday after attempts to sell some of the stores fell flat.
There are Unwins stores in Riddy Lane, Luton, West Street and High Street North in Dunstable and in Barton and Eaton Bray.
The closure of the Eaton Bray store comes just two months after staff were threatened by two robbers armed with a gun and crowbar who made off with a large amount of cash.
