Aussie clothing store Jeanswest has announced that it has gone into voluntary administration, leaving almost 1,000 workers across 146 stores potentially out of a job.

Company KPMG has been appointed administrators, stating that the Australian stores will continue to operate while an “urgent analysis of the business” is conducted.

“The Administrators will be looking at all options for the restructure or sale of this established Australian retail business and are seeking urgent expressions of interest from parties interested in acquiring or investing in the business,” KPMG’s Peter Gothard explained.

The store joins other big brands to announce voluntary administration in the last few years including, Dick Smith, Payless Shoes, Topshop Australia, Espirit, Toys ‘R’ Us, Max Brenner, Roger David, Napoleon Perdis, Bardot and Diana Ferrari.
