Struggling fashion brand Jack Wills, owned by Mike Ashley’s Frasers Group, is set to shutter more stores.
Frasers Group – formerly known as Sports Direct International – bought the preppy fashion brand out of administration last year for £12.8m.
Stores in Bournemouth, Camberley, Cheltenham, Soho, Truro and Witney will shut shop over the next month as Ashley blamed “unhelpful” landlords for the closures.
A Frasers Group spokesperson said: “Since rescuing Jack Wills from administration last year, we have worked hard with landlords to try and keep as many stores as possible open.”
