Job losses re­vealed at Crawshaw shop

Loughborough Echo - - NEWS -

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.
