Sports retailer JJB Sports appointed administrator KPMG for its Original Shoe Company (OSC) and Qube footwear brands following the failure to sell the businesses.

Original Shoe Company has 64 stores and Qube has 13 stores.

As Property Week reported last week, JJB’s lifestyle division continued to trade at a substantial loss of late and the OSC and Qube directors filed a notice of intention to appoint administrators on 10 February.
