The biggest company collapse in the channel came right at the start of the year, when retailer Dick Smith went into both voluntary administration and receivership on 5 January.
The first batch of closure dates, for 35 outlets, were announced on 30 March. Another 53 stores were revealed last week to shut between 23 and 26 April. By April, its receivers had announced all the remaining 195 Australian stores would close permanently by 3 May.
