‘Confusing’ store closing signs removed from department store window

Signs that went up in shop windows shortly after a retail chain fell into administration have been replaced as “active discussions” continue over its future.
However, they have now been replaced with "stock liquidation" signs to address confusion - as no closures have been announced.
A spokesman for KPMG said: "The joint administrators remain in active discussions with interested parties regarding a sale of the business, and stores are continuing to trade.
"That said, it remains the case that if a sale cannot be achieved, then ultimately the stores will close.
"In order to address confusion regarding the signage in-store, the administrators made arrangements to change the signs to make it clear they are running a stock liquidation sale."
