The apparel industry is facing an unprecedented crisis that no one has ever experienced. Like all apparel retailers, C&A is severely impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. Within a few days, all of our 1,400 stores across Europe had to be closed indefinitely due to government restrictions.
C&A's response to Peter Humphrey's allegations published in the Financial Times on February 16, 2018 and again quoted by the media in December 2019:
We had taken the allegations by the British author Peter Humphrey published in the Financial Times on February 16, 2018, very seriously and immediately initiated an investigation. As part of this investigation, we have directly approached Peter Humphrey to hear more details about his observations.
