According to a statement from Force Ouvrière (FO), the direction of the ready-to-wear board would consider the closure of fourteen stores in France. Among them, that of Saint-Etienne, located in the Center-Deux shopping center. The union mentions a plan to safeguard employment (PSE) against 120 employees in France.
"Among the shops involved, Clermont-Ferrand, Caen and Saint-Etienne have been plagued for several months by rumors of the recovery of their facilities by competitor ZARA with a deadline of summer 2019. The problem was that he did not want locals. … where is the PES today? "the FO union said in a statement.
The brand has already closed 8 stores in 2018 and 13 in 2017. According to Le Monde, the brand wants to carry out a new restructuring in France, where it operates 160 outlets.
