Kendal shop faces uncertain future
THE future of a Kendal shop is in doubt after the owners admitted it is set to enter administration.
The video game company Game, which has a branch in Westmorland Shopping Centre, has seen its business eroded by competition from online retailers.
Trading in its shares was also suspended yesterday ‘pending clarification of the company’s financial position’.
Ben Berry, who shops at the Kendal shop, said: “Lots of local hard working independent retailers are struggling and going out of business on our high streets, so it’s all the more showing when a massive 1400-shop company starts to crumble.”
