Which stores are closing down
Shops earmarked for closure include those belonging to popular high street brands such as Dorothy Perkins, Burton, Topshop and Topman.
The retail group’s proposals will also see rent cut at another 194 outlets.
The company is using Company Voluntary Arrangements (CVAs) in a bid to save the retail empire – but stakeholders will have to agree on plans first.
Arcadia chief executive Ian Grabiner confirmed the planned closure of the shops while blaming “changing consumer habits” and “online competition.”
He said: “Against a backdrop of challenging retail headwinds, changing consumer habits and ever-increasing online competition, we have seriously considered all possible strategic options to return the group to a stable financial platform.
“This has been a tough but necessary decision for the business.
“We will ensure all potentially affected colleagues are kept fully informed as we seek approval from our creditors on today’s CVA proposals.”
