Young fashion chain Atlantic Fashions went into liquidation yesterday.
Acton Farm, which trades as Atlantic Fashions, was liquidated at the Manchester High Court yesterday, after a winding up order was issued against the company by supplier Pinstripe clothing.
Up to 200 staff from Atlantic Fashions have not yet received wages owed to them by the company from as far back as October and most are without redundancy letters or their P45's meaning they can't claim benefits or look for a new job.
Confusion surrounds the ownership of Acton Farm. Staff at Atlantic Fashions were told the business had merged with MK One in October. However, when MK One went into administration, its administrators Lennard Curtis said that no merger had taken place.
The name of the liquidator is not yet available from the court office. Drapers will publish contact information as soon as it becomes available.
A spokesman for the sole director of Acton Farm, Andrew Bastock, said Bastock would be sending a copy of the attached letter to all former employees at Atlantic Fashions who email him at ActonFarm@14DeaconStreet.co.uk.
The spokesman added that Bastock had been advised by the JobCentre that this letter would be sufficient enough for staff to claim benefits.The letter contains the court reference, which proves the company has been wound up.
