The shops will remain open while work continues on finding a buyer for all or some of the companies.

The company said in a short statement that a number of potential buyers have come forward and that all options are being considered.

Macintosh, which booked a net loss of €102m in 2014, was declared bankrupt on December 30. The company has a total workforce of over 10,400, many of whom are in part-time jobs.

Dutch budget shoe shop Schoenenreus went bankrupt at the beginning of this year.
