Faced with Financial Difficulties, Go Sport and Gap France Want to Find Buyers


COMPANIES: More than 2,000 jobs are threatened by the receivership of Go Sport France and its parent company

In early February, the Go Sport France brand was placed in receivership two weeks after its parent company, the Go Sport Group, which also owns Gap France. The two companies, which belong to Bordeaux businessman Michel Ohayon, are currently looking for a buyer or investors, reports BFMTV, relaying LSA Conso.

Initially published on the website of the Professional Trade Union Association of Court Administrators (Aspaj), the announcement is valid until the 10th March 2023 at 2 p.m. Interested entrepreneurs have until this date to make themselves known and apply.

2,000 jobs at risk

In total, more than 2,000 jobs are threatened by the receiverships of the two companies. They have a total of 215 stores, an online sales site. Unions and employees of the company had sounded the alarm after the bankruptcy of the Camaïeu company, which also belongs to Michel Ohayon.

The owner of the group had taken over several brands in recent years, thanks to the subsidiaries of its investment fund Financière immobilière bordelaise (FIB). Michel Ohayon thus owns the Grande Récré, the Galeries Lafayette in the regions or even Café Légal, all of which are companies that risk being affected by the Camaïeu situation.
