Falling footfall forces shoe retailer Brantano into administration

Up to 2,000 jobs may be at risk after British shoe retailer Brantano went into administration following a difficult Christmas trading period.

The retailer blamed lack of demand for winter footwear caused by the unseasonably warm weather before Christmas, coupled with the growing number of customers choosing to shop online, for its collapse.

It will now be up to accountancy firm PwC, which has been appointed as administrator for the brand, to work out what the future holds for Brantano's 140 shops and 60 concessions nationwide.

In the meantime, PwC said trading will continue as normal and staff will continue to be paid during the administration period.
