Deathwatch: Republic to enter administration
We saw this one coming a week or so ago, but news is emerging that fashion chain Republic will go into administration tomorrow, with the jobs of 1,000 workers at risk.
The company's CEO, Andy Bond, recently left and the Twitter accounts of individual stores were also closed down, possibly as bosses realised that a rash of HMV-style Twitter takeovers could occur once the shit hit the fan.
If you've got gift cards/vouchers for Republic, we'd advise you spend them TODAY.
More on this as we get it... unless we go down the pub.
