Several candidates to take over Men at Work

There are several takeover candidates for both the Dutch and the Belgian stores of the bankrupt clothing chain Men at work. The curator is confident an agreement should be reached today in Belgium.

 

Tight deadline

"Even though we have multiple candidates, we are still open for new offers", Belgian newspaper Gazet van Antwerpen heard from Liesbet Jacobs, curator for the Belgian branch. However, the stores in Antwerp, Bruges and Ghent remain closed for now, as does the Fish & Chips store in Antwerp.

 

The Belgian branch was declared bankrupt last week following the the Dutch chain earlier. In the Netherlands, too, there are several candidates for a restart. The chain has 27 stores in the Netherlands, it is unclear how many will remain after a possible restart.
