Administrators EY said 19 "profitable" stores would continue to operate

A meat retailer with stores across the Midlands and North of England has closed 35 stores and one distribution center with the loss of 354 jobs.

In October, South Yorkshire-based Crawshaws said it was trying to raise equity to restore growth and profitability.

However, it later did not have "sufficient cash resources" to carry out a restructuring.

Administrators EY said 19 "profitable" stores would continue to operate.

According to its latest set of results for the six months to 29 July, the group posted revenue of £ 21.6m and a pre-tax loss of £ 1.7m.

EY said the firm had "not been immune to the well-documented issues on the high street" which had "resulted in a loss-making issue".

Administrator Hunter Kelly said: "Despite the new management team's best efforts, it is not possible to raise additional investment to restructure the business by reducing the number of high street stores and in-store SPAR butchery offering.

"What a result the group would have to make out of cash due to the loss.

"It's been regretted that 354 people have been made redundant.

"We hope to conclude a sale to the remaining 261 jobs."

The business first started operating in 1954.
