USA: Bid deadline extended in Swifty Serve sale
The deadline for bids for Swifty Serve's convenience stores has been extended until 17 December due to enormous interest in the sale.
Swifty Serve, the second-largest privately owned convenience store chain in the US, filed for bankruptcy and closed its headquarters in October. Around 3,200 employees lost their jobs when the 400-plus stores closed.
Evan Gladstone, managing director of the company administering the sale, Real Estate Clearinghouse, said there has been a tremendous surge of interest in the stores since Thanksgiving last week, reported the Associated Press.
