Prices have been halved at Watt Brothers' Glasgow store as it enters its final week of trading. 

The department store entered administration on Friday, October 18, making 229 staff members redundant. 

Discounts of up to 50% have now been applied to final remaining stock items in the flagship Glasgow store on Sauchiehall Street. 

Hundreds gathered for the initial opening of the store's doors after it had gone into administration. 

To the dismay of the gathered crowds, none of the items were reduced at the time.

The store's permanent closure is expected in the next few weeks.

Following the business going into administration, ten of the stores were closed immediately while the Sauchiehall Street store remained open in order to clear out stock. 

Trading at the store will cease at the end of next week with 53 employees still working in the store. 

Blair Nimmo, joint administrator and UK head of restructuring at KPMG, said: "I want to thank the staff for their efforts in supporting this challenging process. 53 employees remain at the store and we’re working closely with Skills Development Scotland, via their PACE team, to support those who have been made redundant.”

"Our team at KPMG have been working in partnership with the remaining staff members at WattBrothers, clearing final stock items, and we have now discounted most lines by 50% as we continue to realise the stock."
