Former Woolworths games boss Gerry Berkley has returned to the industry four months after the retailer closed, MCV can reveal.
Berkley has been appointed trading manager for entertainment at the Shop Direct Group, which owns Littlewoods, Choice and Empire Stores.
In February, Shop Direct bought the rights for the Woolworths name, which it has since used to launch Woolworths.co.uk.
Berkley left Woolworths in December last year, after the much-loved family retailer went into administration.
He was previously responsible for buying both books and video games at Woolworths, and was a prominent member of the MCV Retail Advisory Board.
