House of Fraser has released plans to close more than half its stores as the retailer’s Chinese owner finalises a restructuring proposal that will put thousands of jobs at risk.
The retailer plans to shut 31 of its 59 stores - including one in Edinburgh’s West End - across the UK and Ireland as part of a rescue deal, impacting around 6,000 jobs.
The House of Fraser stores identified for closure under the CVA proposal are:
London Oxford Street,
London King William Street,
Two stores are excluded from the CVA proposals - Dundrum in the Republic of Ireland and Beatties in Solihull because they are separate legal entities.
