Administrators are still seeking a buyer for Scottish retailer and brand Ness Clothing, which hit the buffers just before Christmas.
Ness, which has 10 stores in Scotland and five in England, as well as four concessions, fell into administration on 23 December as a result of “working capital difficulties”.
The stores will continue to trade while joint administrators James Stephen and William Humphries Tait, from accountancy firm BDO, attempt to find a buyer.
Stephen said like-for-like sales were up 12% year on year in 2016.
He added: “Ness is a unique brand and remains a highly popular shopping destination for its loyal customer base, in towns across Scotland and England, and we are confident of securing a sale of the company as a going concern.
“We have already received expressions of interest and we encourage other interested parties to come forward.”
The first Ness Clothing store opened in 1997 at 367 High Street in Edinburgh. Today, the business employs 105 retail and head office staff.
