The Australian subsidiary of Hong Kong-based Harbour Guide has secured a deal to acquire failed clothing retailer Jeanswest. Harbour Guide is owned by businessman Chun Fan Yeung, who is a shareholder in Jeanswest’s former parent company, Howsea. The sale to Harbour Guidance Pty Ltd is conditional on landlords agreeing to new lease arrangements for Jeanswest stores. The deal will result in up to 106 stores remaining open, which will allow about 680 employees to keep their jobs.
