Northern Irish chains hit the buffers

Northern Ireland young fashion chains Gino and NV have closed down after parent company Nath Bros Partnership appointed liquidators.

Gino and NV stocked menswear and womenswear respectively and operated about 12 stores, mostly in large towns in Northern Ireland such as Belfast, Derryadd and Craigavon.

The stores, which sold brands such as Ben Sherman, Fred Perry and French Connection, begun to close down at the end of January and have now all since closed, affecting 150 jobs.

Seamus Keating of FPM Chartered Accountants has been appointed liquidator.

NV opened in 1973, specialising in women’s fashion, but also catered for younger girls in its Lil’ NV section. In 1981, the company opened its Gino fascia, offering men’s young fashion and clothing for boys.

Keating was unavailable for comment.
