Deloitte started shutting the retailer’s stores last month, initially earmarking five stores out of the retailer’s original 47 stores. As of today, ten stores have been closed, and the shops shuttered, taking the retailer’s store estate to 32.

A Deloitte spokesman commented that “the joint administrators to ModelZone are still trying to find a potential buyer for some or all of the stores. Unfortunately, to date no such purchaser has come forward.”

The stores closed, as of today, are Hull, Leicester, Doncaster, Bluewater, Cardiff, Romford, Ipswich, Meadowhall, Leeds and Swansea.
