N Brown could slim down through store closures

JD Williams-to-Jacamo brands owner could vacate the high street  

In the financial year ended 3 March, less than 2% (£15m) of specialist fashion retailer N Brown’s (BWNG) £922.2m group revenue was generated from brick-and-mortar stores.

It is therefore no big surprise that N Brown is thinking about closing its entire shop estate which consists of 20 small, loss-making sites.

The retailer is primarily an e-commerce player with three quarters of its revenue coming from online. The rest of its sales come from consumer credit interests.
