More jobs have been axed at the ailing homewares and fashion chain Life & Style.
Administrators RSM Tenon have closed a further 12 stores, putting another 181 people out of work.
Life & Style went into administration in June – the business’s third failure in as many years. It grew out of the collapsed Au Naturale and Ethel Austin chains.
RSM Tenon want to sell the business as a going concern but have already been forced to close 22 outlets and make 274 staff redundant.
Joint administrator Simon Bonney said: “Regretfully, to ensure the long-term future of the overall business, we have had no alternative but to close further stores.”
