“This will create more streamlined management in store and head office, and enable us to focus resources on our creative teams, as well as on our growing ecommerce channel. We are currently consulting with our teams and we will support all those individuals affected. We anticipate that there will be some scope to redeploy individuals within our head office in newly-created roles as part of the restructure.”
Norwich’s Superdry store is in the Chapelfield shopping mall.
It comes after a tumultuous period for the clothing retailer.
A battle of the boardroom resulted in former chief executive Euan Sutherland stepping down and being replaced by Julian Dunkerton.
Mr Sutherland had spoken out against Mr Dunkerton’s return to the firm.
