THE COMPANY behind high street chain Jigsaw is to close its younger brand Kew after the group sank to a £10m loss.

Accounts for Jigsaw’s parent company Robinson Webster Holdings show that Kew’s 22 stores made a loss of £6.8m in the year to 1 October after it failed to capture the younger crowds.

The group, founded by couple John and Belle Robinson, said it has chosen to focus on Jigsaw, “the profit generator” of the group. A third of Kew’s shops will become Jigsaw stores while the rest will be closed down.
