M&Co to close all of its stores
High street clothing chain M&Co is to close all of its 170 stores, with 2,000 staff losing their jobs, according to reports.
M&Co appointed administrators at the end of last year, for the second time after it first collapsed in 2020.
M&Co was bought out of administration by AK Retail Holdings who also owns Yours Clothing. However, the deal did not include stores themselves. Stores will shut by Easter.
