Stock up on your Jamie jeans, ladies! Topshop and a number of other popular clothing stores across Ireland are set to close in Ireland as part of Arcadia business’s stategy.
In an effort to safe his business, owner Philip Green plans to close six stores in Ireland and 17 across the UK, putting 520 jobs at risk. These shops include Topshop, Topman, Miss Selfridge, Dorothy Perkins, Evans and Wallis.
You’ll still have time to stock up on your favourite pieces though, as none of the shops are set to close in the immediate future.
In a statement the company said: “No UK or Irish trading locations will close in the short term, and employees and suppliers will continue to be paid on time and in full.
“The Group is committed to keeping redundancy levels to a minimum. The locations which have been identified for potential closure employ 520 people.
It added: “Every effort will be made to redeploy affected colleagues within the business where possible, and any staff unable to be assigned a position elsewhere in the Group will be eligible for applicable redundancy payments.”
A meeting will take place on June 5th to see if the closure plan will go ahead.
