About 3 Weeks, 4 Days, 13 Hours, 31 Minutes ago.
Travel firm Tui is set to shut 48 more High Street shops in the UK, affecting 273 jobs.
The UK's largest tour operator said it would offer to redeploy employees at risk of redundancy to other stores or to work from home.
The move follows the closure of 166 Tui shops announced in July 2020 which affected up to 900 jobs.
Both decisions were made after the pandemic sped up a shift to people making online holiday bookings.
Tui will have 314 High Street retail stores remaining following the closures.
The firm said in a statement: "The travel industry and the British High Street are both facing unprecedented pressure.
