Pembroke Dock: Shoe retailer to close following appointment of administrators

Closing down: The Pembroke Dock store

HIGH STREET shoe retailer Brantano has collapsed into administration placing almost 1,100 jobs at risk.

The firm is currently seeking for a buyer for many of its stores including Pembroke Dock.

This means the chain is selling nearly all of its stock at its stores at discounts ranging from 10% to 30% – including Clarks shoes for children.

A visit to the company’s website confirms that it has now stopped trading.

A notice on the homepage reads: “Anthony Steven Barrell and Michael John Andrew Jervis of PricewaterhouseCoopers LLP  were appointed as Joint Administrators of Brantano Retail Limited on 22 March 2017 to manage its affairs, business and property as its agents and without personal liability. Anthony Steven Barrell and, Michael John Andrew Jervis are licensed in the United Kingdom to act as insolvency practitioners by the Institute of Chartered Accountants in England and Wales.”

Brantano, along with Jones Bootmaker, was bought by retail investment firm Alteri Investors in October from Dutch-based Macintosh Retail Group.

Jones is not affected by the administration
