Computer Bookshops Fails To Make It Out Of Administration

Posted at 1:02PM Monday 12 May 2014

Birmingham-based tech book seller Computer Bookshops Ltd has failed to make it out of administration, and is being wound up.

The company had become a fixture since setting up in 1978, and claimed a portfolio of more than 350,000 volumes by the time it had to call in the administrators in February 2014.
