Job losses revealed at Crawshaw shop
ADMINISTRATORS for Butcher’s chain Crawshaw have revealed job losses in Leicestershire.
Branches in Loughborough, Leicester and the factory shop near St George’s Retail Park in the city all closed after the firm collapsed.
A total of 27 jobs have been lost in Leicestershire - nine in the city centre, five at the factory shop and 13 in Loughborough.
Nationwide 350 jobs have gone with 35 stores being shut.
The announcement follows the appointment of administrators to the group on Friday, after it failed to secure additional funding. Administrators from EY said they have entered into discussions with interested parties with a view to agreeing a sale of the business in the coming weeks.
A rescue deal could safeguard the remaining 261 Crawshaw staff.
Just 19 stores remain open after 35 ceased to trade over the weekend, while a distribution centre in Astley has been closed.
