Brantano garden centre concessions saved

There will be 28 of the 29 Brantano concessions within garden centres carrying on trading after private equity firm Alteri bought the shoe company back after putting it into administration.

 

Almost 1,400 retail jobs have been saved after Alteri bought 81 shops and 59 small concessions, which between them employ 1,372 people.

However, the future of 58 stores remains at risk after Alteri chose not to purchase them, meaning 600 people face losing their job.

Brantano went into administration in January after suffering a difficult Christmas. The retailer was founded in Belgium in 1953 and expanded into the UK by buying 47 Shoe City shops in 1998.
