Sports Direct tycoon Mike Ashley has sacked Jack Wills boss Suzanne Harlow, just weeks after buying the retailer out of administration.

Retail Week understands former Debenhams executive Harlow was ousted from the preppy fashion retailer yesterday following a meeting with Ashley.

Jack Wills staff were informed of her departure yesterday.

A source close to Harlow said she would not want people to think that she would walk away from a difficult situation.

By ‘the rest’, I mean all the incompetents.

    I used to be a big fan of JW but about 18 months ago the styles got ugly and very similar to other high-street offerings so I just stopped going. If you start doing what everyone else is doing you can only compete on price.

    I think I’ll just recycle my wardrobe for another 10 years now.

      That issue as you put it seems to be why it happened. Don’t know why people didn’t tell her. Perhaps they did.
