Ted Baker at the Grand Arcade in Cambridge is among 11 UK stores that will be closed by April 19, the Evening Standard reports.  

The news outlet reports the joint administrators for the company have revealed the store closures will result in the loss of around 120 jobs.  

About 25 head office roles will also be made redundant as a result of plans to reduce central costs at the troubled fashion chain.  

A further four stores had previously earmarked for closure prior to the firm entering administration, according to the administration team at Teneo Financial Advisory.  

These will close in the coming weeks.  

Administrators from Teno were appointed in March. 

At the time, Ted Baker’s parent company Authentic Brands Group said the business it had bought 18 months ago had ended up with “a significant level of arrears”.   

As well as Cambridge, other Ted Baker stores closing by April 19 are in London, at the Birmingham Bullring, Bristol, Exeter and Leeds.  

The closures leave Ted Baker with 31 stores and 564 staff in UK and Ireland.  

In the Evening Standard, Benji Dymant, joint administrator, said: “Ted Baker is an iconic British brand with strong partners around the world.  

“These store closures, whilst with a regrettable impact on valued team members, will improve the performance of the business, as Authentic continues to progress discussions with potential UK and European operating partners for the Ted Baker brand to bring the business back to health.  

“We would like to thank Ted Baker team members and partners for their ongoing efforts and support at this difficult time.”
