City sandwich chain stops trading

Nearly 30 people have lost their jobs following the closure of Glasgow sandwich bar chain Henry Healy.

The six-strong chain, one of the city's oldest family-run sandwich bars, shut its doors for the last time on Friday, with all 27 staff being made redundant.

The managing director is Henry Healy, grandson of the founder who established the chain in 1913.

Scott McGregor and Ken Pattullo of Begbies Traynor have been appointed as joint liquidators.

Mr McGregor said: "It's very sad to see the demise of such a long established family business but unfortunately it had suffered a downturn in the face of competition from national chains coupled with the impact of the recession."

The six sandwich bars were located in Hope Street, Queen Street, Howard Street, Mitchell Street, Stockwell Street and Sauchiehall Street.
