Weymouth Shoe Store Shutting Down

Eighteen stores in the collapsed shoe shop chain Barratts Priceless will shut before Christmas, including in Weymouth, administrators said today.

Five Barratts and 13 Priceless stores will close on Friday across the UK and Ireland, resulting in the loss of 127 jobs, with a further 60 staff members in the head office in Bradford also made redundant.

Barratts stores set to close this week are in Connswater, Kilmarnock, Darlington, Cardiff and Blackpool. 

The 13 Priceless stores are in Croydon, Durham, Oldham, Strabane, Crossgates, Kettering, Carlow, Donaghmede, Torquay, Weymouth, Kings Lynn, Bexhill on Sea, and Erdington.

The shoe chain collapsed into administration earlier this month, after unseasonably mild weather further exacerbated already difficult trading conditions.

Administrator Deloitte said it will continue to trade the remaining 173 stores as it seeks a buyer for all or parts of the business as a going concern.
