    As Poundworld's Administrators, Deloitte have failed to seek a potential buyer for the failing chain, all Poundworld store managers have been informed by Deloitte to buy their staff lunch in hope to stop them from worrying about no longer having a job, and to "boost morale".

    This move would see a spend of £50 per store on lunch, costing an estimated £16,750 in total to the already failing business.

    Despite failing to get a buyer, they are in talks with Poundworld founder Chris Edwards in hope to sell a proportion of their stores. If Edwards were to strike a deal to save the chain it's still expected that around 150 stores would still close down.

    100 members of staff have now been made redundant at their head office in Normanton, Yorkshire.

    I'm pretty certain that staff being given free lunches won't quite settle the nerves and fear of losing a job.

    Sandwiches all around perhaps?

    I spend £50 on lunch let alone for a whole store of staff, maybe they'll have to buy a sandwich and packet of crisps from their own store!
