Closing sale / liquidation sale
“The remaining 99 stores have been told that they unfortunately cannot join. There is now cessation of sales. For some of these, franchisees are considering whether to continue as independent stores or as part of another chain. Jotunfjell Partners is positive and wants to facilitate this,” it says.
– “Monday, the next stage for the Vita chain starts, Vita has highly qualified and some of the best professionals in the industry, and together they are now starting work on regaining customer confidence,” says Thor Hauge, who will serve as general manager of the chain for the time being.
