A CHESHIRE Oaks suit store will close at a cost of 13 jobs.
Suits You is to shut after administrators for the troubled chain ruled the business is unviable in the current retail market.
Recovery specialist Zolfo Cooper was called into the Speciality Retail Group, which operates 66 Suits You menswear stores across the UK and Ireland, in October.
Its initial plan had been to continue trading from profit- making stores while winding down loss-making outlets.
But it decided to close some stores almost immediately and shut others, including the Cheshire Oaks shop, after the busy Christmas period. About 370 staff will lose their jobs nationally.
Fraser Gray, a partner at Zolfo Cooper, said: “We looked at trading the business in the longer term, however, this has not proved to be financially viable.
“In the absence of a going concern buyer, the best alternative is an extended trading period through Christmas.
“This will provide some employees with ongoing employment during the festive season and we are expecting a busy period due to substantial discounting.
“We would like to thank the employees for their ongoing support and understanding during this very difficult time.”
