JOBS could be at risk at Clinton Cards in Bath Street after last week’s announcement that the company has gone into administration.

Nationwide, the store employs over 8,000 staff.

Peter Saville, joint administrator and partner at Zolfo Cooper said, “It is likely that a number of stores will need to be closed in order to make the business financially viable. However, Clinton Cards and Birthdays are very well-known brands on the high street and we believe that there is a strong underlying core business.”
