JD Sports-owned Go Outdoors on brink of administration

Last week, shops eventually reopened, but with limits on the number of people allowed in-store at once so as to comply with two-metre social distancing rules.  JD Sports bought Go Outdoors in 2016 for £112m, but was forced to file legal notice of its intention to appoint administrators on Friday, according to Sky News. It is the latest retailer to fall into trouble in the wake of the coronavirus lockdown, after Cath Kidston, Debenhams and Laura Ashley also all called in administrators in recent months.
