The company behind retail clothing chain Shanton has gone into receivership.
The receiver says all 39 shops will continue trading pending completion of a going-concern sale.
Receiver Anthony Harris said store employees have been told they can keep their jobs and will receive all outstanding wages within a week.
He said gift vouchers, credits, refunds and laybys will be honoured in full.
Shanton Clothing has a store on Grey St in Tauranga.
