The High Court was expected to approve Musgrave’s £60m acquisition of Londis as The Grocer went to press
The deal boosts Musgrave’s UK sales to more than £1bn and doubles its business this side of the Irish Sea.
Londis retailers will be sent the first half of a £30,000 windfall on August 9 with the second instalment to follow in 12 months’ time if they are still trading with Londis.
