Manchester Evening News - - NEWS -

CLOTH­ING chain Coast has col­lapsed into ad­min­is­tra­tion, be­com­ing the lat­est re­tailer to be hit by Bri­tain’s high street woes and putting 300 jobs at risk.

The firm’s staff have been in­formed that PwC has been drafted in to carry out the process, with all 24 stand­alone sites to close, in­clud­ing the Traf­ford Cen­tre.

The brand has con­ces­sions in Deben­hams in the Traf­ford Cen­tre and War­ring­ton, and House of Fraser in Manch­ester.

It is un­der­stood that ri­val Karen Millen has bought the group’s brand and web­site, tak­ing on 600 staff, but 300 jobs are now at risk.
