PayPoint is back up and running at all McColl’s stores.
It comes after PayPoint suspended bill payment services in the majority of McColl’s stores last week in a bid “to ensure the continuity of its services for its clients and customers”.
The move was in response to McColl’s announcing it was in talks with lenders to prevent a collapse into administration.
At the time, a PayPoint spokesman said: “Further to McColl’s Retail Group’s statement on 28 February, PayPoint has implemented measures to ensure the continuity of its services for its clients and customers.
“After discussions with the McColl’s leadership team, PayPoint can confirm it has suspended bill payment services in the majority of McColl’s sites until further notice.”
The convenience retailer insisted however that the suspension was temporary and a full PayPoint service was expected to “resume shortly” across its entire estate.
PayPoint has confirmed to The Grocer its services “are now available again at all McColl’s retail sites”.
A spokesman for the payment service provider added: “We would like to thank our retailer partners for their support today in delivering vital services in communities at over 28,000 locations across the UK, a network larger than all banks, supermarkets and Post Offices put together.”
McColl’s would not provide any further comment.
