This may affect the Halifax and Brighouse shops, as they already have shops in the towns.
Irene Hays, chair of the Hays Travel Group, said that Hays will "build on the good things Thomas Cook had, not least its people", adding: "We all share a passion for the travel industry and we want to continue to build the company's reputation for first-class service and being a great place to work and develop a career".
We have already recruited over 400 talented former Thomas Cook employees and we are ready to welcome many more of the retail branch staff.
Jim Tucker, partner at administrator KPMG, also added that the Hays deal "provides re-employment opportunities for a significant number of former Thomas Cook employees, and secures the future of retail sites up and down the United Kingdom high street".
The 40-year-old Sunderland-based company reached sales of more than UKP1 billion in 2018 and celebrated by sharing UKP1m with its 1900 employees, who each received UKP100 for every year they'd worked there.
The company also offered jobs to over 600 former Thomas Cook employees and offered to help all of the Thomas Cook apprentices to complete their training at the Ofsted accredited Hays Travel Academy.
