This article reports that the decision to sell Allders PLC as a going concern or break up the department store group is due to be made on February 4, 2005. Although it set 2 February as an unofficial deadline for bids to give it time to consider them, any late substantial bids will also be considered. Andrew Pepper, joint administrator in the company stated that the management is keen to sell the business quickly and the high level of interest makes it more likely that the management will receive four or five serious and viable bids in short order.
