Adams bought by its former owner
Adams went into administration on 31 December
The Adams Childrenswear brand and the remaining 120 stores have been bought out of administration by one of its former managers, John Shannon.
It means that 1,900 jobs throughout the UK and Ireland should be saved.
Administrators PricewaterhouseCoopers have closed 147 stores and cut 1,100 jobs since taking over on 31 December.
