Women’s fashion retailer Bonmarché has appointed administrators.
Helen Connolly, chief executive, said she had made the decision with “deep regret and sadness”, and blamed tough High Street trading conditions, and the Brexit delay, the BBC reports.
The Yorkshire-based chain, which specialises in clothing for the over-50s, employs 2,887 people.
Its 18 shops will remain open while a buyer is sought for the chain, the BBC has reported.
