New Look plans to close 60 stores and axe as many as 980 jobs in a deal aimed at keeping the struggling clothing retailer afloat, the company said on Wednesday.
The firm blamed a “challenged trading performance and a difficult retail environment” for the move.
New Look Announces Store Closures In Company Voluntary Arrangement Proposal
New Look bosses will also work with landlords to slash rent on more than 400 other stores.
Alistair McGeorge, Executive Chairman of New Look, said: “Given our challenged trading performance and over-rented UK store estate, we are having to take tough but necessary actions to reduce our fixed cost base and restore long-term profitability.
“We have held constructive discussions with our key landlords and strategic partners and will now seek creditor approval on our [company voluntary agreement] proposal. A priority for us is to keep all potentially affected colleagues informed during this difficult time.”
Many of the stores under threat of being shut down are large centre of city and town outlets where rents are likely to be higher.
These include flagship stores at London’s Marble Arch and Oxford Circus.
It comes after the high profile collapse of children’s retailer Toys ‘R’ Us and electronics store Maplin put thousands of high street jobs at risk.
Meanwhile bosses of other chains have said that last week’s extreme weather was a veritable “disaster” for sales.
