NEARLY 3,000 jobs will be axed after the administrators of Clinton Cards announced 350 stores face closure.

It is still unclear which Clinton Cards shops will face the chop but all of the group's Birthdays stores will be closed, including the ones in Southampton and Fareham.

Roughly 200 Clintons-branded stores will close as administrators said the business was “burdened with an untenable retail estate”.

The move will see 2,800 full and part-time staff lose their jobs in a wave of store closures starting next week and continuing into June.

Yes, but people can afford to use online card services like Moonpig.com.

Clinton Cards didn't change with the market so failed.

It is to do with money, but in the context that we know that we can get a customised card and have it posted for us at for not much more than Clinton was selling it's tat for.
