DW Sports, a fitness center and sports activities retailer, has mentioned it is going to enter administration, placing 1,700 jobs in danger.
The firm, based by former Wigan Athletic proprietor Dave Whelan, operated 73 gyms and 75 shops throughout the UK.
Last month, it mentioned it could shut 25 shops.
The firm’s web site has ceased buying and selling. DW mentioned it could work with directors to save lots of as many gyms as attainable, whereas all of its outlets will ultimately shut.
