Cath Kidston is to permanently shut its 60 UK and Irish stores with the loss of more than 900 jobs.
The fashion retailer confirmed its stores will not reopen once the coronavirus lockdown is over after the company’s owners secured a deal to buy back its brand and online operations following its fall into administration.
