Credits Brantano outlet in Broughton Jobs at risk as PwC warns shoe retailers 1,100 staff that redundancies are inevitable One-Minute Read Thursday, March 23, 2017 - 11:41am Shoe retailer Brantano has collapsed into administration for the second time in 14 months. Private equity firm Alteri Investors, which bought the long-time loss-making business and its sister brand Jones the Bootmaker for £12m in October 2015, has taken action after failing to secure a buyer. Jones is also said to be on the brink of following suit if attempts to secure a rescue bid fall short. Alteri first put the retailer into administration in January 2016, says the BBC , before buying it back, although the total number of stores was reduced from 200 to close to 140. Brantano now has 73 outlets and 64 concessions employing a total of 1,086 staff, down from almost 1,400 when it was rescued in February 2016.

Word is that Harvey 'scissor-hands' Weinstein's been fiddling with the cut of Tulip Fever , but Chadwick and Stoppard's previous work leaves us hopeful that the movie will survive the tinkering. Once again, the cast is also tip-top: look out for Alicia Vikander, Dane DeHaan, Christoph Waltz and the ubiquitous Cara Delevingne among the blooms. 25. The Circle Dave Eggers' novel of the same name is a high-tech, Orwellian dystopia for our times: a drama-thriller about a Google-like internet company and its gradual encroachment on its users' privacy. The movie, written and directed by James Ponsoldt ( The Spectacular Now ) will star Emma Watson as the new employee who watches as the tech firm quietly takes over the planet. Done right, The Circle could be genuinely disturbing. 24. The Dark Tower This one's been a long time coming.

The Trump White House has already frozen the regulation, and Labor Secretary nominee Alexander Acosta testified during his Senate confirmation hearing on Wednesday that he had “serious questions” about whether the department even held the authority to increase the overtime salary beyond the rate of inflation. Other industries with ties to Trump say they’re bullish on the new administration, too. The Associated General Contractors of America released an industry survey before the inauguration that found three out of four construction firms expected to increase their payrolls this year because of Trump’s policies. “President Trump’s approach to construction is very much in line with where our members are,” said the group’s CEO, Stephen Sandherr. The real estate law firm Seyfarth Shaw, which represents the Trump Organization, published a survey last month showing two-thirds of the commercial real estate market expected a positive effect from the Republican president thanks to his push for deregulation, tax reform and the dismantling of the Dodd-Frank consumer protection law.
