The announcement came after two days of meetings between representatives of the 26-store chain’s 1,000 employees and store officials. A representative of the main shareholder, Butler Capital Partners, was present.
Virgin Store spokeswoman Isabelle Clap said the chain had been hurt by a “series of problems that accumulated.” As sales of CDs declined, the chain failed to expand in digital markets quickly enough.
Clap confirmed Virgin Megastore hasn’t paid rent in 3 months but refused to provide overall debt figures.
