Pavers picks up four Brantano shops

Footwear chain Pavers has picked up four stores from collapsed retailer Brantano.

The shops are located in Bournemouth, Lincoln, Newport on the Isle of Wight, and Newton Abbot in Devon. A total of 45 jobs were saved.

Tony Barrell and Mike Jervis of PwC were appointed as joint administrators of Brantano on 22 March after they failed to find a buyer for the business.

Barrell said: ”We continue to trade the rest of the stores and concessions, whilst engaging in ongoing discussions with interested parties about the potential sale of further parts of the business.”

Stuart Paver, managing director, Pavers, said: “We have recently made it clear that Pavers is embarking on a period of strategically planned and focused growth. This opportunity fitted perfectly into our expansion plans, allowing us to move into a select number of areas within the UK where we are currently under represented.

”Importantly the jobs at all four stores will be saved. We expect to rebrand these stores and be trading within 6-8 weeks, bringing comfortable, stylish, and good-value footwear to everyone locally.”

As previously revealed by Drapers, Pavers had been interested in buying parts of the Brantano and Jones Bootmaker portfolio before both chains went into administration last month.

Half of the 71 head office jobs at Brantano were axed earlier this month, including the buying team.

The retailer has 73 stores and 64 concessions across the UK.
