A popular Wendouree clothing outlet will shut its doors after its parent company announced Australia-wide stores would enter voluntary administration in mid-January.
The Ed Harry store inside Stockland Wendouree will soon close after clearing its stock, leaving one full-time and five casual members looking for a new job.
Parent company KPMG’s voluntary administrator Brendan Richards spoke about the nation-wide store closure.
“Unfortunately, and despite having run a comprehensive sale of business campaign, there have been no viable offers received for the ongoing operations of the company,” he said.
Ed Harry Managing Director David Clark also thanked the Ed Harry team in a statement provided to The Courier.
“Our hard working Ballarat team members and customers have been incredibly supportive and on behalf of the directors I just want to say thank you, this is a sad time for all those who have put so much into our business,” he said.
The Courier attended the store today, however staff declined to comment on the issue.
