Sports Direct deal saves 2,100 jobs at Republic
More than 2,100 jobs have been saved by Sports Direct International's purchase of 116 stores from fashion retailer Republic.
The Sports World group has also taken over the stock, along with the group's head office in Leeds and its websites and brands SoulCal, Fabric and Crafted.
Republic called in administrators from Ernst & Young earlier this month.
