Clothing company Designer Wardrobe is closing its stores in Auckland, Wellington and Christchurch.  

The buy-sell-rent-businesses Chair is blaming the Government's so-called "unclear" pandemic timeline for the decision.  

Simon Moutter says if there was certainty stores could reopen in December - they would have kept their physical stores.  

Moutter told Heather du Plessis-Allan the Government doesn't understand the cash-burn caused by lockdown. 

“Access to capital is very fragile for a small-medium business and therefore, without certainty you simply can't access it." 

Designer Wardrobe will still operate its online store.
