Peacocks boss Philip Day 'working hard' to reopen stores

The clothing chain Peacocks, which went into administration earlier in the year, is to reopen its flagship store in the centre of Cardiff at the weekend.

It is the first shop to be reopened by new owners Edinburgh Woollen Mill (EWM) since the Cardiff-based chain went into administration.

Philip Day, chairman and chief executive of EWM, spoke to Oliver Hides of BBC Radio Wales in his first broadcast media interview since the takeover.

In his additional role as chief executive Peacocks, he said he was working hard to ensure more of the closed stores reopened, and said the company had a "wealth of talent" among staff.
