Tough market blamed for Jigsaw and Kew's losses

Womenswear retailer Jigsaw will open more standalone stores in the US later this year, despite announcing falling profits and sales. In the year to September 30 2006, Jigsaw's pre-tax profits fell to £8.48 million, from £14.59m the year before. Directors at Robinson Webster, which owns Jigsaw and sister womenswear chain Kew, said the disappointing figures were a result of difficult trading and the time needed to establish new brands. Kew made a loss of £1.1m for the period.
