The Fast retail group, which owns the clothing brands, 'Comptoir des Cotonniers' and 'Princesse Tam-Tam', has announced a reorganisation with the closure of 24 Comptoir des Cotonniers shops, which should lead to 217 job cuts.
The other brand 'Princesse Tam Tam' would also be impacted with 7 shop closures and 68 job cuts. In addition, 50 'corners', that is sales areas in department stores, will be closed, including all points of sale located in the Printemps and Galeries Lafayette department stores.
The Comptoir des Cotonniers and Princesse Tam Tam brands have been experiencing difficulties for several years and despite the efforts already made, the situation has continued to worsen' says the management in its press release. 'Both are very strongly impacted by the crisis in the clothing market and have been strongly affected by the repeated social and societal upheavals of recent years'.
