JOBS are ex­pected to go at women’s cloth­ing chain Prin­ci­ples, which has a branch at Ash­ford’s De­signer Out­let. Up to 66 stores are ex­pected to close na­tion­wide, with the loss of 2,300 jobs, af­ter ad­min­is­tra­tors were un­able to find a buyer. Deben­hams will buy most of the stock, but the ma­jor­ity of staff are ex­pected to lose their jobs. David Mad­di­son, cen­tre man­ager at Ash­ford De­signer Out­let, said: “The Prin­ci­ples store at the out­let is cur­rently trad­ing and we have been in­formed that it will con­tinue to do so for the next cou­ple of weeks, at which point a de­ci­sion about its fu­ture will be made.” The store at Gilling­ham’s Hemp­stead Val­ley Shop­ping Cen­tre closed on Satur­day.
