THE OWNERS of a major hairdressing company that has a store in Clydebank have gone into administration.

Supercuts, owned by Regis UK, have called in administrators - putting 1,200 jobs at risk.

They have 220 salons including one in the Clyde Shopping Centre.

Deloitte have been called in to look for options but the salons will remain open while a buyer is sought for the business.

Rob Harding, joint administrator at Deloitte, said: said: “The retail trading environment in the UK remains extremely challenging and Regis UK Limited had been seeking to address this through a restructuring of its business.

"Unfortunately, these trading challenges coupled with the uncertainty caused by the legal challenge to the CVA have necessitated the need for an administration appointment.

"This is in order to provide protection for the business whilst restructuring and sale options are fully considered and explored.

“The group operates two very strong brands and we are working with all key stakeholders to stabilise the situation and provide the best solution possible.

"We would like to thank the group’s employees and other key stakeholders for their ongoing support at this difficult time.”

The store is the third in the Clyde Shopping Centre to go into administration - following Watt Brothers and Bonmarché last Friday.
