Major Retail Chain Goes Into Administration


Jobs at Keighley Retail Park and Pendle Village Mill are at risk, as a major retail chain goes into administration

Brantano, a Belgian concern, has a store on the retail park where ten people are employed and they are understood to operate a franchise at Pendle Village Mill, just off the M65

The company’s British HQ is in Coalville in Leicestershire – the company employs around two thousand staff in the UK

The company was only bought out last year, but administrators PwC say it’s a respected brand and they’re hopeful of a sale

In the meantime the business will continue to trade, and wage bills will be met
