Arcadia is preparing to launch a CVA within the next 48 hours, Retail Week has learned.

Sources close to the business said “most” major landlords had been “really supportive” of Arcadia’s proposed plan, which would include the closure of 57 stores across its Topshop, Burton, Miss Selfridge, Dorothy Perkins, Evans and Wallis fascias.
