The company’s online business,, will be unaffected by the restructuring.

The restructuring will mean 104 staff may be made redundant subject to a collective redundancy process, but the company said it is confident it will secure the jobs of the remaining 90 employees.

In a statement, Richard Barron, managing director of Pamela Scott said; “Extraordinary times require extraordinary measures and we feel this is the very best way of protecting not just one of Ireland’s oldest and largest fashion chains, but the livelihoods of our remaining 90 employees.”

“When it comes to high-street retailing in general, and fashion in particular, you have to adapt or face extinction. Pamela Scott has repeatedly adapted both to changing customer tastes and to changing market conditions.”

“We are confident that this restructuring will allow us to continue to bring the very best of Irish and international fashion to our Irish customer base for many years to come,” he added.
