Clothing retailer collapses
High street retailer Bonmarche has collapsed into administration, putting almost 2,900 jobs at risk.
The retailer, which has a branch in Aberdeen’s Bon-Accord Centre, has become the latest victim of the high street downturn after a “sustained period of challenging trading conditions”, administrators said.
Tony Wright, Alastair Massey and Phil Pierce, of specialist advisory firm FRP, were appointed as joint administrators for the firm yesterday.
FRP said the company will continue to trade with no immediate job losses, as it assesses options to secure the future of the company.
