Marypaz, one of the largest footwear retail companies in Spain, has announced the closure of 41 of its 125 stores and a collective layoff plan affecting 170 people. The company has also introduced a temporary redundancy plan to reduce working hours of workforce during the limited sales period. This workforce adjustment plan is a consequence of the firm's decision to close 41 stores (having 125 currently) due to the Covid-19 crisis. The company's objective is to guarantee business continuity and to maintain as many employees and stores as possible.
The announcement comes after an insolvency rescue in November 2019.
