Nine jobs to go as Internacionale closes

Wed, 28 Aug 2013

Nine people have lost their jobs after high street clothing store Internacionale announced it will be closing its doors on Friday.

The loss-making fashion chain was recently sold as a going concern by administrators.

A new company was set up to purchase the majority of the stores, safeguarding 1,500 jobs in the process, the Island’s shop however was one of a handful which didn’t make the cut.

The booming popularity of online shopping has been cited as the main reason of the company’s downturn.

The closure will leave a prime location site dormant in Strand Street.

Management from the store were unavailable for further comment.
