Administrator, Neale Jackson, said at this stage all Meccano stores in New Zealand would remain open in the administration, and on sale mode.

"Having just been appointed, we are seeking urgent expressions of interest for the business assets and working closely with the management team to quickly establish a way forward for the business", Mr Jackson said.
