Birthdays goes into Administration, 323 stores and 2000 jobs at risk.

18 March 2009

See my Blog entry from February predicting the end of the line for greetings card retailers. 


Seems that Clinton Cards does have serious problems putting its 223 store chain Birthdays into administration today. 


Guess the directors might send a get well soon card? 


Seriously though who would buy this chain losing £7m per annum, 323 high street, high rent stores? One has to question why it was put into trading administration.
