More than 400 people lost their jobs today after another wave of stores was closed at collapsed retailer Clinton Cards.

The group, the UK's biggest specialist cards retailer, fell into administration last month, although 397 of its stores were sold to Ohio-based American Greetings yesterday, saving 4,500 jobs.

Administrators at Zolfo Cooper today closed 43 of the 330 stores not included in the deal, leading to 408 redundancies.

They have already closed 44 sites last month but are looking for buyers for the remaining stores in a bid to save nearly 3,000 full and part-time jobs.
