Fashion chain Republic facing plunge into administration
2:31pm Tuesday 12th February 2013 in Hampshire Business
FASHION chain Republic is on the brink of going into administration, putting 1,000 jobs across the country at risk.
In total, Republic has 121 stores across the UK.
Ernst & Young is being lined up as administrator.
Republic's problems make it the latest in a long line of High Street retailers to face significant difficulties, including Jessop's, HMV and Blockbuster all struggling in recent months.
