THE joint administrators of the Rosebys group of companies confirm that they have this week closed a further 31 of the home textile retail chain's outlets, making 186 people redundant.

Among the outlets that have closed is the store in the Britten Centre, Lowestoft, leading to four redundancies.

In addition, the administrators have also closed the Rosebys distribution centre in Selby, North Yorkshire, with the loss of 87 jobs.

Howard Smith, Joint Administrator and KPMG Restructuring Associate Partner, said: “It is with regret that we have had to close both the distribution centre in Selby and 31 more stores across the country.

“We anticipate further store closures next week, while we continue to have dialogue with a number of parties who are interested in either the whole or parts of the business.”
