Can we ever forgive Mike Ashley ... he has helped save jobs at a Mackem store. THE SHAME OF THE MAN!
More than 100 Republic branches nationwide, including one in The Bridges, have been bought by the Newcastle United boss’ Sports Direct group.
Republic began as a men’s denim retailer in 1986 under the Best Jeans brand in Leeds and carries a range of well-known brands to young adults, including Jack Jones and SoulCal.
The chain collapsed into administration a fortnight ago with 150 staff losing their jobs at its Leeds headquarters.
