Over the last few months, it’s been only about bankruptcies, store closures or staff furloughing – That’s what this deadly pandemic has done to every industry across the globe, including the fashion retail sector.
White Stuff, the clothing retailer from the UK, is the latest to have announced that it will be cutting as many as 390 jobs.
As with most of the fashion retailers, White Stuff too has said that cuts are a part of company’s restructuring process, which is now complete.
While, the retailer will be axing 100 staff from its head office, another 290 employees from its UK store estate are also bound to lose their jobs.
With the announcement of these job cuts, White Stuff now has 1,100 workers in its 120 UK stores.
In May 2020, the fashion retailer had first given a hint of cutting jobs after it entered into redundancy consultations so as to be ready for reduction in demand owing to the fast surging coronavirus crisis.
Finally, White Stuff had to take this hard decision to keep all its stores open.
The British fashion brand, known for its exquisite menswear, womenswear and kidswear, was founded back in 1985 and has stores across England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland.
