After Esprit, Galeria Karstadt Kaufhof and Sinn, the next fashion giant in this country had to go through a protective shield procedure: Orsay CEO Sascha Bopp confirmed at the end of 2021 that the procedure had been opened. Due to the threat of insolvency in the first quarter of next year, the group felt compelled to take this step.
Shortly thereafter, the management then informed the employees in the branches and the head office about the step. In Germany there are a total of 197 of the 708 branches worldwide, in which about 1,200 employees work. Overall, around 40 percent of the fashion chain’s sales come from the German GmbH.
